Title: Sign Language Film List
Url: http://www.johnlubotsky.com/deafcinema/
Creator: Lubotsky, John
Description: In learning any language, a good way to hone your listening skills to range of common speakers is by watching movies in the language, and sign language is no exception. Although referring to it as using your listening skills may be a bit of a stretch, viewing different people sign can be good real-life practice in order to learn the nuisances of individuals' "speech." The Sign Language Film List has attempted to compile a complete of a list of films and other works available in American Sign Language, and their efforts should be rewarding to students, speakers and instructors.

Hello!
<BR>
<BR>
I am the editor of the website <A href="http://johnlubotsky.com/deafcinema">http://johnlubotsky.com/deafcinema</a>. I did not author the description listed above, and am writing this to offer a correction and clarification.
<BR>
<BR>
The list I maintain is intended as a cultural resource and as a service to Deaf communities, increasing access to poetry, humor, drama, and simple entertainment in ASL on film, which can be difficult to find and to distribute.
<BR>
<BR>
In sharp contrast, educational videos teaching how to sign ASL are readily available, and while these are invaluable to students, my website is not the best source for them.
<BR>
<BR>
All that said, I'm pleased that students also find it useful, and I thank you for its' inclusion here.
<BR>
<BR>
Best Regards, <BR>
John Lubotsky <BR>
