Students in Gallaudet's "Story In Film: History of the Documentary" course are adjusting to outside-the-classroom learning by watching films online and joining Zoom discussions.  Thanks to the generosity of director Adam Isenberg, they will be watching   via an open-access link, and you can watch it too.  The documentary shows the story of Deaf youth in a remote region of Nicaragua as they learn Nicaraguan Sign Language and gain the ability to communicate.   

Watch  is available free until April 20, 2020.

You will need a free Vimeo account to view it - and the link automatically inserts a promo code, making the film free to watch.
