In celebration of Deaf Awareness Week, Visible Cinema presents its first online event with a screening of Black Bear plus Q&A

Visible Cinema is a D/deaf and Hard of Hearing friendly film programme. Black Bear is available with captions and the Q&A will be BSL interpreted with live captions.

Black Bear is directed by Lawrence Michael Levine. It is a disturbing, darkly comic tale that constantly surprises as it brutally blurs the boundaries between life and art. In the first act, filmmaker Allison (Aubrey Plaza) heads to an idyllic lakeside retreat in search of relaxation and inspiration. There she meets Gabe (Christopher Abbott) and his pregnant partner Blair (Sarah Gadon) who could not be more welcoming. After a meal and a few drinks, truths are shared and secrets revealed as playful bickering turns to blatant flirtation. In the second act, everything is turned upside down and the dynamics of the evening can be seen in an entirely different light. 

For the Q&A, playwright and author, EJ Raymond will discuss their approaches to writing and telling a story. 

EJ Raymond is an author and writer of plays, scripts and monologues. They also wrote the books, Dad’s Basketball Girl and Every Father’s Nightmare available now on Amazon with their third book due to be published later this year. Currently, EJ is writing a monologue for Deafinitely Theatre’s upcoming new project. EJ is non-binary, gay and a single parent of two, a multitasking freelancer and finally, profoundly deaf.

Film content: strong language, sex, drug misuse. All tickets £4.49.
