Deaf Culture PBS Online Film Festival 2019: Ode to Pablo

A Short Deaf Culture Film “Ode to Pablo” On A Young Queer Deaf Man

What is the film “Ode to Pablo” about? – Challenged to a basketball game by local boys, Pablo, a queer, deaf Latino, agrees to play. He does not reveal much about himself but his special basketball skill speaks for itself.

He is truly enjoying the game when an unexpected incident makes it obvious to the other teens that Pablo is deaf person. Despite assumptions about each and however brief, Pablo makes a connection with one of the boys.

Enjoy the movie with English subtitles.
