Retreat, UK's first film scripted in sign language, hopes to revolutionize the movie industry
There is much excitement over Retreat, United Kingdom's first movie to feature a deaf cast.
The actors will sign their dialogues. Those who don't know British Sign Language will read the subtitles to find out what is going on.
The filmmaker is Ted Evans, who was born deaf. However, Evans says his film is not only for deaf audiences.
Evans says that Retreat happens to be a story about a group of deaf people who communicate in sign language.
Evans says there are many deaf people who feel frustrated while watching films frustrating with no subtitles. He also believes that deaf people are often represented by filmmakers who do not understand what it is like to have no hearing.
