Event Date: 05/06/2016 14:00

The Filmhouse in Edinburgh invites you to the second instalment of their Signed Up season, curated in partnership with Heriot-Watt University's sign language experts.

In the Bélier family, sixteen-year-old Paula is considered indispensable as the interpreter for her deaf parents and brother. When her gift for singing is discovered, Paula is encouraged to participate in a prestigious singing contest in Paris - a decision that would mean leaving her family.

The screening is rated 12A and will be followed by discussion with both deaf and hearing guests to explore the issues raised by the film.
