SHORTS AT CHAPTER:

SPEECHLESS

Before language, humans communicated in a myriad of visual signals.

Join us at Chapter on Wednesday 18th July for a chance to see our Speechless programme of animated short films, one of the highlights of Cardiff Animation Festival 2018. These carefully selected animated short films in competition are masterpieces of visual storytelling, to be enjoyed in any language. From a Stranger Things-style portrait of childhood and illness, to a punky Garden of Eden escape story, these films will enchant and immerse you, delight and enlighten you, all without saying a word.

The screening is followed by a BSL-interpreted discussion for those who want to stay and learn more about the films – plus stay for a drink and a chat, we would love to meet you!
