Back to TopASL Movie Night at UK

ASL NightIt is well known that successful horror movies effectively utilize sound. On the evening of September 26, at the "ASL Movie Night at UK" event, in the basement of the CTW Building, both UK students and Deaf community members had all eyes glued to the screen as they watched a horror movie with no audio. The ASL movie, “Black Sand” was produced without audio by ASL Films and included English subtitles. Sixty-one people attended the event, including some EKU ASL students. UK ASL students also had the opportunity to talk with Deaf community members in ASL during the halftime break. Needless to say, everyone loved the popcorn that was provided by Student Affairs. The event was a huge success; both Deaf and UK ASL students expressed how much they enjoyed the movie! -- Anthony Isaacs, M.S. Deaf Ed., Certified by ASLTA - Professional Level ASL Instructor
