Cataclysms come in many forms, and affect the population differently. In science fiction with a horror slant, we’ve seen several stories about the possibility of humans negatively impacted by an audible frequency. In cinema alone, we have THE SIGNAL (2007), PULSE (2006), and CELL (2016), but we’ve yet to see how this would affect a community of people that are unable to hear the signal or pulse. DAWN OF THE DEAF, a short film that played at Fantastic Fest 2016 teases this question.
From the crew behind the film: “The film was made for only £7000.00 and with the support of the D/deaf community in London, it was a real labour of love from all involved, no-one got paid but we had a blast making it and are working very hard to try and raise the finance for a feature version. If you would be able to help us spread the word about a project that is very true to filming and horror filming in particular, we would be so very grateful.”
This short acts as a perfect stepping stone as it leaves you wanting to see what happens next to the city, and the people we are introduced to. And I’m glad that it is now available for the public to view outside of the festival circuit.
The short can be viewed on Vimeo as part of their Staff Pick premieres!
