What are their experiences during the political upheaval and what roles have they played in the social transformation?
An Englishman in Paris - L'oeil et la main
Britain and France have a Love-Hate relationship and we only have to look at Hundred Years’ War to know this has been going on for a very long time! But that chapter of French (or British) history is not necessarily well-known by the French (and British) deaf community. So, we gave ‘carte blanche’ to Louis Neethling, a British deaf director , to make a film of his journey into all things French... How does he view France and the French? Could it be that these mutual historic prejudices between these friendly enemies – are diluted by a common understanding of sign language?
