Collection: OEIL ET LA MAIN (With Eyes and Hands)
Director(s): Various Contact
It is the only regular sign language programme in the French TV landscape and is aimed at a large audience, deaf and hearing alike... acting like a "bridge of understanding" between both. Each programme is dedicated to a particular theme or subject that proposes a true encounter between the deaf and the hearing allowing them to exchange their points of view on the world. They coexist and complement each other within a given thematic series composed of three or four individual documentaries. In each film, a deaf presenter explores and narrates the chosen theme.
“L’Oeil et la main” looks at a great variety of subjects: political activism, the life of deaf professionals and artists, the situation of deaf people in other countries around the world, holidays for deaf people, how the deaf deal with war or natural disasters and many other issues.
The programme also ventures abroad several times during each season to cover specific events such an international sign language congress in South Africa, a brigade of deaf combatants in Libya, or the fate of the deaf in Haiti…
