A New Chapter Begins

October 9, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free – £8
A close up black and white image of a person's face. They are clawing at a clear veil covering their face and have their mouth open like they are yelling. They look angry, desperate and fierce.

SQIFF is proud to present a showcase of films from deaf filmmakers telling stories of love, understanding, and courage. In each of these short films, we see human beings reaching out to connect with one another through sign language, endeavouring to discover not only themselves but a larger truth. We are reminded in the journey of each character and story that love is not limited to the words we speak but is greater than ourselves and transcends the language we use.

Curated by Jamie Rea. We are happy to be joined by filmmakers Teresa Garratty and David Ellington for a Q&A after the films.

The Q&A for this event will be live-streamed online and open to all. The shorts programme will also be available to rent online from SQIFF’s Vimeo on Demand channel 2 to 10 October.

Tickets are on a pay what you can sliding scale of FREE, £2, £4, £6, or £8. To book, click the button below or call the CCA Box Office on 0141 352 4900.
