Communicating through American Sign Language, Amar Mangat shares his journey navigating the city as a deaf, queer South Asian youth living in Vancouver, BC Canada. Amar: Deaf is an Identity explores the intersection between the deaf, hearing, queer and People of Colour communities in a world that privileges hearing, heteronormativity and whiteness.
The film attempts to disrupt the assumptions and expectations of the “hearing world” by experimenting with notions of silence, sound, narration and ‘language’. As the camera follows Amar through different parts of the city, the audience is offered a glimpse into a quiet world loud in (deaf) culture through his language and lens.
