Who the Hell is Nigel? – Film Screening
December 3, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
If you live in BC, you’ve probably seen his face before. Who the Hell is Nigel? is a documentary film by Window Box Media, produced with the support of TELUS, about ASL interpreter Nigel Howard:
In this time of crisis, an unwitting hero is made of an ASL interpreter who brings a daily dose of light to COVID-19 briefings in British Columbia. Yet through Nigel Howard’s rise to fame, the underrepresentation of the Deaf community becomes evident. “Who the Hell is Nigel?” expands on the narrative beyond Nigel Howard’s rise to internet celebrity. The piece tackles three major topics: who is Nigel Howard and how he came to be famous; Deaf culture in Vancouver, both historically and at present; and the specific impact of COVID on multiple Deaf communities.
This December 3rd, the TELUS Abilities Network is excited to host a screening of this new documentary and a panel discussion with the film crew. The screening takes place from 5:00pm – 6:30 PM PT, virtually on TELUS’ conferencing platform.
A panel discussion will follow the screening including:
- Nigel Howard – subject of the film
- Ladan Sharaei – consultant for the film
- Nigel Edwards – film production team
- Brian Ceci – film production team
