Watch: Rinkoo Barpaga’s documentary about racism in the Deaf community

Posted on March 23, 2015



On the BSL Zone today there’s a new programme called Double Discrimination, which is a brand-new documentary about racism in the Deaf community.

The film was made by Rinkoo Barpaga as part of the Zoom 2014 scheme for new filmmakers.

It features Deaf people talking openly about their own experiences of racism and discrimination, with Rinkoo himself making for an engaging presenter guiding us through his film.

The documentary is bound to raise a lot of debate in the community and potentially change attitudes. Make sure you see it.
