Movie Info

SEE WHAT I'M SAYING follows the journeys of four deaf entertainers through a single year as their stories intertwine and cumulate in some of the largest events of their lives. Bob, a drummer in the world's only deaf rock band Beethoven's Nightmare, produces the largest show in the band's 30 year history; CJ, a comic known around the deaf world but unknown to hearing people fights to cross over to mainstream audiences by producing the first international sign language theatre festival in Los Angeles; Robert, a brilliant actor who teaches at Juilliard struggles to survive when he becomes homeless; and TL, a hard of hearing singer is caught between two worlds when she produces her first CD "Not Deaf Enough." The documentary is the first commercial American film to be fully subtitled for the country's 30 million deaf and hard of hearing and to open the door into deaf culture for those who are "signing impaired." On Deaf Culture Deaf culture is unique. Out of the nearly 30 million deaf and hard of hearing Americans, only 10% have a parent who is deaf, making deaf culture one of the only heritages in the world that is rarely handed down from parents to children. Deaf culture is composed of a community of people who consider deafness to be a difference in human experience rather than a disability. There are deaf entertainers within the community who perform mostly for deaf audiences, many of whom are trying to cross over to the mainstream. This film is about four of those entertainers. --© Worldplay

Though this inspirational movie often cuts away too quickly from its characters' stage performances, it's a significant look at a vital, underreported segment of the entertainment world.

Cinema Autopsy

A deeply heartfelt documentary that manages to be illuminating, poignant and captivating while abundant with humor, warmth and charisma.

NYC Movie Guru

At once heartbreaking and irritating, enlightening and boring, but frankly not aesthetically well made in any particular way.
