Audism Unveiled

How much do you know and understand about the Deaf Community and Deaf Culture? Being deaf in a hearing dominated world often comes with oppression. This insightful documentary film from directors Ben Bahan and H-Dirksen Bauman explores audism, which is defined as the notion that one is superior based on one’s ability to hear and speak, or behave in the manner of one who hears and speaks. Learn the history of audism, the circumstances in which it is most frequently found, its emotional ramifications, and the Deaf Community’s passionate response. Reexamine your assumptions, engage in the content and become part of the solution.

Following the screening, there will be a Q&A with the filmmakers moderated by Andrea Passafiume.
*ASL/English interpretation will be provided.

This free screening is presented by the City of Takoma Park’s “We Are Takoma” arts and culture series, in partnership with Docs in Progress.
