    hey chally,
    nice review. as you can probably tell from my name, i’m the writer/director of the film. to answer your questions, charlotte is hearing. Re the issue of accessibility, we did a captioned version, however, i’m not sure if tropfest put it on their DVD. people can still view the film at my website or through youtube’s “screening room”. regarding the possible reading that “man tries to get attention of woman, who is then punished for not paying attention”, i hope people don’t see it that way. it certainly wasn’t intended to be that, but i can see what you’re saying. hopefully the over-riding take away is a demystification of deaf and blindness, plus making the point that, at the end of the day, we’re all just people, and some speak different languages.
