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.

The ship sets out to sea each year with 3,000 men for a seven-day European journey. A luxurious week of dancing, drinking, and drag.

The passengers are overwhelmingly young and white.

Expectations of romance are high as is the rare opportunity for some to experience a freedom not possible in their daily lives.

The film focuses on a handful of them, conducting somewhat probing interviews.

It screens one night only at Berlin & Beyond at the Goethe Institute in San Francisco Thursday 15 February 2018.
