The Silent child

I really need to flag up The Silent Child, which just aired on bbc1. It's just twenty minutes long, but it's brevity beguiles it's power. I better not say much about it; it's about a deaf little girl and her new tutor. What makes the film such a groundbreaker is that the young actress who plays the girl is deaf herself, and that the film is subtitled throughout. It is thus a statement about inclusion, and a sign that the mainstream media may now be trying to include people with disabilities a bit more. Surely a step in the right direction. I can see why it won an oscar.
