Watch: The BSL Zone’s magical Christmas drama Tree Fairy!

Posted on December 23, 2013

There was a special seasonal premiere earlier today, when the BSL Zone’s magical Christmas drama Tree Fairy was shown for the first time on digital television.

The film is about a Deaf girl who finds herself left out at Christmas, before a fairy appears and offers her the chance to make a special Christmas wish!

There are fantastic performances from Deaf actors Olivia Jordan-Caws (who plays the young Deaf girl) and Rebecca Withey (as the fairy), and the film was directed by Deaf director Louis Neethling (Switch, Horatio, Coming Out).

This is Neethling’s third collaboration with writer Rebecca Atkinson, who also wrote Coming Home and Fairytale of London Town, and there are some fantastic special effects.

Below, there’s some images from the film. It’s well worth a watch (look out for the twist near the end!).
