This LibGuide is designed to help guide researchers through the scant amount of information on Deaf film.  For the purposes of this guide, Deaf film is defined as a film that features Deaf Culture, whether this is through the actors, the plot, the writers, or some other aspect of the production. Deaf films have been produced during three eras:

Silent Films, 1900-1929

Classic Hollywood, 1930-1989

Recent, 1990-present

Each tab will to lead both online and print sources. Print books are located on the Library's first floor (the floor the entrances are on) in either the Deaf or Reference Stacks. Ask for assistance at the Library Service Desk if you can't find what you want.
