The TELUS Abilities Network is presenting a free virtual screening of the new documentary Who the Hell Is Nigel? this Friday (December 3).
The film is about Nigel Howard, the ASL interpreter who has become a familiar face to British Columbians for his work during the province's televised COVID-19 briefings with Dr. Bonnie Henry.
“Who the Hell Is Nigel? expands on the narrative beyond Nigel Howard’s rise to internet celebrity," reads the event info. "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."
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with Howard, film consultant Ladan Sahraei, and film production-team members Nigel Edwards and Brian Ceci.
The event runs from 5 to 6:30 pm Pacific time, and you can register here.
Note: there will be ASL interpretation and real time captioning (CART) at this event.
