Black Silence: Compensation, Daydream Therapy

When: Fri., Feb. 20, 6:30 p.m. 2015

Set a century apart, two Chicago love stories of a deaf woman and a hearing man converge in Davis’ feature debut to contemplate Black experiences across lines of class, gender, and ability. Inventive use of sign language and intertitles makes the film accessible for deaf and hearing audiences. Daydream Therapy, the first short by fellow UCLA “L.A. Rebellion” filmmaker Bernard Nicholas, utilizes the limitations and possibilities of silent, small-gauge cinema to poetically render the escapist fantasies of a hotel worker. (16mm/Digibeta.)
