Zeinabu irene Davis – Compensation (1999)

The first feature by LA Rebellion trailblazer Zeinabu irene Davis presents two unique Black American love stories between a deaf woman and a hearing man. Inspired by a poem written by Paul Laurence Dunbar, this moving narrative shares the struggle of two couples—one in the early 1900s, the other in the 1990s—to overcome racism, disability, and discrimination. A groundbreaking look at African American deaf culture, COMPENSATION incorporates sign language and silent-film techniques (such as title cards) to make itself accessible to hearing and deaf viewers alike and to share the vast possibilities of language and communication.
