Students for Esteli and Film Unit are excited to present a screening of A Life without Words as part of Esteli Week!

A Life Without Words is an independent documentary by filmmaker Adam Isenberg. It features the efforts of a sign language teacher in Nicaragua who works with a local NGO that empowers Deaf Nicaraguans by fostering the nationalisation of Nicaragua's indigenous sign language and by training young Deaf Nicaraguans to be teachers.


About Film Unit

Film Unit is the award winning independent cinema located in the Sheffield Students' Union. Founded in 1949, we are a group of cinema lovers who desire to provide entertainment, to be not for profit, and to promote film as an art form.

We screen a selection of films on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays during term time, with the cheapest ticket price in Yorkshire. We specially curate our programme with blockbusters, independent, foreign, family and classic cinema, to ensure we provide something for everyone. For us, cinema should be for everyone, so all our standard screenings are open to the public, our matinee screenings are Hard of Hearing friendly with subtitles and this semester we are hosting a special Autism-friendly screening of Lego Batman. We're hosting two very special free screenings of I, Daniel Blake in association with Unite the Union and on April Fools' Day, we're holding a hilarious Fools Festival of British Comedy Cinema. We are volunteer-run so if you'd like to get involved, please get in touch. www.filmunit.org.uk

Once again many thanks to all our staff, volunteers and of course, our audience!

PLEASE NOTE: Online ticket sales include a 10% booking fee.
