This expanded and updated version includes 4 new scenes dealing with challenges posed by recent technology (VRS, email and pagers).
A humorous and enlightening look at the differences between Deaf and Hearing cultures.
Narrator Thomas K. Holcomb and two cultural experts, Miss Deaf Manners and Miss Hearing Manners, explain how to view Deaf culture with the same lens used to view other world cultures.
Issues such as leave-taking, privacy, attitudes toward time, giving and receiving criticism and comments on personal appearance are explored and discussed from each cultures’ point of view.
“Overall rating: A+… Viewers are gently nudged to drop negative judgments and move to a new level of comfort with cultural differences.”
