Comedy 2014 7 mins
A first date goes from awkward to excruciating when Ben obliviously insults a Deaf couple chatting nearby. Seizing on the opportunity to turn the tables, they take advantage of his naivety and expose him as a fool to his date Chloe who decides to make an early exit. A hilarious first short film from Charlie Swinbourne, who deftly skewers the assumptions made by hearing people about Deaf culture and language.
