Directed by Shirely Horrocks, ‘See What I Mean’ is a documentary about people with a hearing impairment, and those who identify as Deaf. It tells the stories of a family who were all born Deaf, and a journalist who began to lose her hearing in her twenties. It features footage of Deaf community events including rugby, an education meeting and socialising at the Deaf Club, ending with the Kelston Deaf Education Centre jubilee celebrations!

This was the first broadcast documentary to present the concept of ‘Deaf Culture’ to New Zealand viewers.
