New music video Unsilenced features song sung entirely in sign

Created for the French deaf awareness charity La Parole aux Sourds, this new promo features an original song that is performed using dance moves and sign language.

Unsilenced film

On first viewing, the new promo Unsilenced appears to be created for an instrumental song. The film stars deaf dancer Billy Read, who is shown performing a number of moves, which to untrained eyes, look like dance gestures. It is only at the end of the film that the second layer is revealed, along with the lyrics to the song.
