Silent Shout Delegation from Malaysia_HKIDFF

March 24, 2012

Welcome Dinner last Feb 23 for the 2nd Hongkong International Deaf Festival participants largely consisting of Silent Shout delegation from Malaysia.

This is a group photo with Silent Shout members from Malaysia, and some members of the Hongkong Association of the Deaf: Lau Lai Fong, Vice-President; next to her is Mary Ng from News of Deaf. On the extreme right is Nurul Oyun Mohd Salleh [hearing], Executive Producer / Mentor of the Silent Shout members [consisting of film director participants, performers, etc].  It is only now that my work is over for the UP ISIP video project that I have started checking and classifying photos that I shot in Hongkong from Feb 23-26 when Giselle [Montero] of SDEAS and I attended the HIDFF 2012. Can you see Giselle and I sandwiched in between the Malaysian participants?

We were inspired upon seeing the bond that tie the Deaf together — sign language, irrespective of the country they represented. The most number of attendees came from Malaysia. We’ll make sure that next year, Deaf Filipino entries will be represented as much because we have a lot of Deaf latent talents here actually waiting to be tapped, get exposed, and brightly shine. It is high time to move towards having our own Deaf Film Festival. Myra [Medrana], gear up and be ready for this event!!!
