Auckland Deaf Society’s long-awaited redevelopment for the clubrooms and offices finally starts, and the rebuild takes eleven months before members move into their new home.

This film, edited by Sonia Pivac, captures the final Friday night at Auckland Deaf Society in September 2006, the last club evening before the building is demolished for rebuilding.

Lorraine Butler and Dan Hanks interview some ADS members to ask them their views about the pending demolition and rebuild, and in particular their thoughts and feelings about the changes to their ‘second home’.
