Fantastic short film Dawn of the Deaf has just launched online as Vimeo Staff Pick.
The short has screened on the worldwide festival circuit including FrightFest, Sundance and won the Oscar Qualifying Shorts Prize at Sitges, as well as being longlisted for a BAFTA award.
Dawn of the Deaf is an apocalyptic horror short, made with the Deaf community in London. The aim was to create a genre film that would connect deaf and hearing audiences in an engaging, thrilling way. As opposed to re-treading the same narratives usually seen when dealing with disability, the film creates a tense story in which the characters' ‘disability’ becomes their ultimate advantage over the hearing population.
