Definitely NOT a documentary
21 October 2020 | by mraaroSee all my reviews

I found this in Netflix's documentary section because deaf culture fascinates me. I quickly found out, however, that this is a reality show, not a documentary. The filmmakers seems to go out of their way to simplify relationships between students (mainly by focusing on just 5-6 students in a school of 1000) and enhancing the drama between them.

That being said, the characters the students play are interesting, and I ended up watching the whole season. I also learned about deaf culture, though my time would probably have been better spent just watching Cheyenna's Youtube videos.
