Signing impaired movie goers are confused by silent film A Quiet Place and demand an interpreter be provided so they can “hear” it.
Movie theaters object to this request for accommodation, stating that it ruins the purpose of the film being silent.
Movie goers state, “But we can’t hear anything and we don’t know sign language.” “This has been such a traumatic experience for us, all we want to do is watch a movie with our families but we don’t even know what’s going on.” “Why can’t they just speak?”
The local Deaf community is gathering up crisis counselors to assist and support these folks in their time of need and emotional vulnerability. Interpreters will be provided, as most of those who are affected are signing impaired and unable to communicate in any way other than with their mouths.
