  • Reverse Planet explores the discriminations which occur between the two worlds of Òhearing cultureÓ and Òdeaf cultureÓ. Taking place in the future, reversed are the roles and experiences between the silent and the hearing wherein the deaf have become more privileged in our society. Throughout the video, the dialogue is primarily spoken via sign language without subtitles - a strategy used to provide the Ôhearing viewer a reversed experience of silence and misunderstanding.
