Aneta Brodski

Deaf Jam, a film by Judy Lieff, follows Isreali immigrant Aneta Brodski, a deaf teen living in New York who boldly enters the spoken word slam scene after discovering American Sign Language (ASL) Poetry. This creative journey leads her to cross paths with Tahani, a hearing Palestinian slam poet. The two women collaborate to form a duet, creating a form of slam poetry that successfully performs to both the hearing and Deaf. This film is in support of the Museum's exhibition NEW/NOW: Francisca Benítez and addresses the challenges and triumphs for those in the Deaf community.
