Screened at the SignLight International Film Festival, See Hilari Scarl’s (2023 Awardee) Creative Capital project Not Another Deaf Story. Eight Deaf strangers gather at a remote cabin under false pretenses and end up confronting a mysterious ghost. This immersive experience was devised completely in American Sign Language (ASL) with an all-Deaf cast and then translated into English. Voicing actors made this sold-out, live stage production accessible, captivating audiences with its authentic and unique storytelling. The filmed adaptation expands the narrative for a wider audience with additional visual effects, a compelling score, immersive sound design and seamless voiceovers added during a meticulous post production process.

Not Another Deaf Story is nominated for Best Feature Film at the SignLight International Film Festival.
