Deaf Jam

When: Thu., Oct. 6, 6 & 8 p.m. 2011

Think about the dramatic stage presence and energy of a poetry slam, then add in the extra element of body language — more specifically, American Sign Language. Aneta Brodski, a deaf Israeli immigrant to New York, is your spirited protagonist in Deaf Jam, in which she collaborates with a Palestinian slam poet to bring ASL poetry to hearing audiences. The documentary film screens for free at 6 and 8 tonight in Colorado College's Cornerstone Arts Center Screening Room (825 N. Cascade Ave., ifsoc.org), with one of Brodksi's friends from the Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind in attendance to field questions. — Matthew Schniper
