The Sign For Love directed by Elad Cohen and Iris Ben Moshe Israel (2017) is a documentary about a deaf gay man.
Elad divides his time between hearing family members and a group of deaf friends. He’s closest to Yaeli, a deaf woman who wants a child.
The two of them decide to not only have a child together but to share an apartment and raise the baby as a couple.
While Yaeli’s mother is supportive of her, Elad has many unresolved issues with members of his biological family.
The Sign For Love reveals some of the unanticipated complexities involved in relationships that will surprise viewers.
It screens a second time at San Francisco Jewish Film Festival 38 on Friday 27 July 2018 at Albany Twin, Albany.
