“Lesezeichen” – Listening to Children’s Literature with your Eyes

Since 2006 the Zentral- und Landesbibliothek Berlin (The Berlin Central and Regional Library) has been organising a series of readings in sign language for deaf and hearing impaired people. It is the only library event of its kind in the whole of Germany and we attended it with our cameras. In the film the organisers, readers and participants tell us what “Lesezeichen” is all about.
