Deaf Cinema

Deaf Cinema is a unique subgenre that focuses on the experiences and perspectives of the deaf community. Deaf filmmakers often explore themes related to deaf culture, language, and the deaf experience while shedding light on challenges, triumphs, and complexities faced by the deaf community. With a wide range of genres, Deaf Cinema can include deaf characters simply existing in a hearing world or stories that discuss the various experiences of the deaf. It serves as a testament to the creativity, resilience, and artistic prowess of deaf filmmakers while also serving as a platform for deaf actors, writers, directors, and more to showcase their talent and share their stories with the world.

The Angry
Misrepresentation and Underrepresentation.

Angry Deaf People Productions was founded as a response to the constant cultural appropriation of Deaf people in the film industry. Our ultimate mission is to build a safe space for Deaf filmmakers to tell their stories… And to put an end to the casting of hearing actors in Deaf roles.

The Deaf
Deaf-centric and Deaf-driven.

The majority of our cast and crew are Deaf. We deliver multi-genre stories that revolve around Deaf characters, sign language, and our way of life.

Continuing the commitment to having deaf individuals in key creative roles, such as directors, writers, and producers. By prioritizing deaf voices in the filmmaking process, Angry Deaf People can offer a unique perspective and ensure authentic representation.

The People

Changing the norm.

The independent film scene remains to be one of the most inaccessible forms of art. We aim to change that by investing in the Deaf ecosystem.

Go beyond the deaf experience and explore intersecting identities. Develop stories that depict the lives of deaf individuals from diverse backgrounds, such as different ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, or disabilities. This approach can contribute to more inclusive and multi-dimensional storytelling.
