SILENT WORLD is a creative exploration and amplification of the covid-19 pandemic as experienced from the eyes of Signkid, a deaf-rapper in London. It is a musical short film which creatively explores the ‘silent world’ that has intensified and deepened for D/deaf people in the course of the COVID pandemic. It visualises the sense of isolation, fear and societal disconnection that the hearing world has been experiencing - the sort of isolation that D/deaf people experience every day.
