An uneven program of documentary shorts about profoundly deaf people adjusting to their disability. In Metronome (2000, 4 min.) by Vita Gottlieb, a young Londoner describes how he learned to play the piano by feeling its vibrations with his feet (the same technique has also allowed deaf percussionist Evelyn Glennie to perform with orchestras). Andy Jones's Your Place or Mine (2002, 14 min.) is a compilation of segments from the Lonely Planet TV series offering etiquette pointers for those traveling in non-Western countries. The video is captioned for the deaf. Fed Up (2002, 59 min.), a video by students and faculty of the Texas School for the Deaf, is about deaf teens coping with intolerance and abuse. Although well-intentioned, it feels like an extended public service announcement.
