“Through Deaf Eyes,” a two-hour HDTV documentary for PBS, explores nearly 200 years of Deaf life in America. The film presents the shared experiences of American history — family life, education, work, and community connections — from the perspective of deaf citizens. Narrated by actor Stockard Channing, the film includes interviews with former Gallaudet University president, Dr. I. King Jordan, and actors Marlee Matlin and Bernard Bragg, as well as historians and deaf Americans with diverse views on language use, technology and identity. The film presents the story of Deaf life in America — a story of conflicts, prejudice and affirmation that reaches the heart of what it means to be human. “Through Deaf Eyes” is produced by Emmy and Peabody award winner Larry Hott. The editor is Diane Garey. “Through Deaf Eyes” will be broadcast on Wednesday, March 21 at 9 p.m. ET on PBS stations nation-wide (check local listings).
