Groei

Growth is a poem in Dutch Sign Language, with a distinctive cinematographic design. During the creative process, in the interaction between two hearing filmmakers and a deaf poet, poem and film image were blended producing a new form. For deaf people the medium of film adds new dimensions to the poem. Hearing people experience an intriguing ballet of hands accompanied by thought-provoking sound. 

Growth evokes similarities between the development of a human being and the seasons.
