REVIEW: SEE WHAT I'M SAYING
OVERVIEW: With more than 30 million deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals living in the U.S., deaf culture thrives in America. Yet although deaf performers are famous within their own community, they remain largely unknown to hearing audiences. SEE WHAT I’M SAYING: THE DEAF ENTERTAINERS DOCUMENTARY is an inspirational and heartfelt documentary that follows four well-known entertainers in the deaf community: a comic, a drummer, an actor and a singer as they attempt to cross over to mainstream audiences. These uniquely talented deaf entertainers overcome great challenges on their way to personal triumphs and professional success..
Bob Hiltermann, a drummer in the world’s only deaf rock band, Beethoven’s Nightmare, produces the largest show in the band’s 30 year history; CJ Jones, a hugely famous and internationally renowned comic in the Deaf world, but virtually unknown to hearing audiences, fights to cross over to the mainstream by producing the first international sign language theatre festival in Los Angeles; Robert DeMayo, a brilliant actor who teaches at Juilliard, struggles to survive when he becomes homeless while living with HIV; and TL Forsberg, a hard-of-hearing singer finds herself caught between the hearing and deaf communities when she attracts her first major producer to record her first CD, “Not Deaf Enough.”
