Silencing the Deaf
3 February 2019 | by ebot_00See all my reviews

Would you bleep out every other word of an actor? Would you mute and black out their mouth? No to both. Then why is it whenever someone decides to have a deaf character they decide to film their conversation by cutting off their hands in the frame. This is equivalent to silencing the deaf. If you can not see the frame in which deaf individuals speak in you are cutting off their words. I couldn't even watch 10m of this show without shutting it off. Why would they direct something with sign language leading and not honor the language and how it is communicated??? Disappointing!
