Zoom Focus: Confession – BSL Movie

An historical drama set during Victorian England (23 minutes)
Historical drama exploring issues in Deaf education. Confession’s central characters are inventor Alexander Graham Bell and his deaf wife, Mabel. The film looks at Graham Bell’s hostility to sign language and shows the effect of his ideas on grass-roots Deaf people. When Mabel sees the limitations of a non-signing educational approach for herself, her presumptions are challenged. Starring Deaf actress Sophie Stone as Mabel, Confession is the second film by director Julian Peedle-Calloo, made as part of the BSLBT’s Zoom Focus scheme.
