Story in Hollywood Reporter - February 22, 2010

By Jay A. Fernandez

I had the pleasure of running into filmmaker Hilari Scarl at a cocktail party up at Sundance last month, and she had me captivated while talking about her documentary "See What I'm Saying: The Deaf Entertainers Documentary."

Scarl was a TV producer and short-film maker who was chosen to compete on Steven Spielberg's reality show "On the Lot" a few years ago. Among Scarl's achievements in putting together "See What I'm Saying" is the fact that it's the first American theatrical release to be fully subtitled for the country's 30 million deaf and hard of hearing viewers.

The film follows four deaf entertainers - a stand-up comic, a drummer in an all-deaf rock band, an actor and Juilliard professor who is homeless, and a singer - as they navigate their personal and professional lives over the course of a year and try to cross over to mainstream audiences.

The film will screen March 19-April 1 at the Laemmle Sunset 5 in L.A., and April 9-22 at the Village East Cinema in New York, if you want to check it out. "See What I'm Saying" will premiere March 18 at the Egyptian Theater.

This song was written by for the film by the rock band Powder to play during our closing credits. Sprint made it possible for us to make the song accessible to all audiences. We had fun making it. Enjoy!
Our screenings so far have been incredible. The Mayor of Bremerton came out to welcome SEE WHAT I'M SAYING for our Washington State screening, fans drove in from NC and AL for our screening in Athens, GA and the email responses and YouTube comments have profoundly touched my heart.

I read the Facebook Fan Page every day, and really appreciate all of the love you have given this film.

I look forward to seeing each of you at a screening!

Warmest wishes,
Hilari Scarl
