Can You Say That Again?

Kulsuma is a profoundly deaf Muslim artist who wears two cochlear implants which give her access to sounds she could not otherwise ‘naturally’ hear. Due to the limitations of this sonic range, her understanding of language can appear delayed and her speech can be unclear to others. To communicate, she lip-reads and uses a fingerspell sign language alphabet.  Can You Say That Again? Looks at the relationship between sound and sight, between speech and text, between hearing and reading, foregrounding her disability and daily struggle to understand and be understood.
