Carlos wishing you welcome

5-2=7 is a documentary that aims to immerse into deafblindness, a sensorial disability very little known, but that affects more than 3000 persons in Catalonia.

What is their story? Have you ever asked yourself how they perceive the world? How they overcome the challenges in communication? In an eminently audiovisual world, the deafblind people live through their imagination and the interpretations of touch perception. Their hands are their connectors to everything that surrounds them.

The protagonists of 5-2=7

5-2=7 takes us on a journey through the eyes of the deafblind people themselves. Here they explain about their daily challenges, they express their needs and abilities, and describe how deafblindness have changed their lives.

In one of his first interviews, Carlos, one of the protagonists, told us the following: “when they diagnosed me with retinitis pigmentosa, I looked at myself and said: “And now what?” I was worried. I had a group of friends whom I was gradually getting away from. Because of fear. Fear of myself. I felt weird. "

Isabel, with Usher syndrome has explained how the communication with other people has got much more complicated as her condition has gradually worsened.

Before, I could speak sign language with another person within my field of vision, but now I need that person to be next to me, I need to touch their hand in order to understand what they are telling me. Communicaton is very difficult.

The documentary includes testimonies from other deafblind people, as well as from the people around them, those who accompany them in their day to day life.

What is our goal?

We aim to make a documentary to raise society's awareness of deafblindness, to stop it from being seen as a strange thing. And to show that deafblind people have their own features regarding communication and mobility, but that with the right tools they can do many things.

5 -2 = 7 takes us into the world of deafblindness through the deafblind people themselves so that we all can become aware of their condition and not least stop their daily struggle from being submerged in a world of silence and darkness.

Why do we ask for your collaboration?

MultiSignes is an audiovisual production company specialized in accessibility with a great social vocation. The idea of 5-2 = 7 was born some time ago. Little by little we have been making some of the recordings and interviews that will be included in the documentary. But the budget rules, and every time the piggy bank was emptied we had to leave the project on standby. Until now, that we have decided to finish it once and for all, because 5-2 = 7 deserves to become a reality.

People with deafblindness live in no man's land. Their sensory disability is little known, which makes them an invisible collective.

Help us make them visible and give them a voice. Join us at 5-2 = 7 and help us make it possible!

#05 / L’Ahmed i el programa Vida Independent

El documental 5-2=7 va avançant de mica en mica i volem compartir amb vosaltres
algunes de les coses que hem après durant les últimes setmanes. Ja us vam presentar l’Ahmed,
un dels protagonistes del documental. Avui us fem cinc cèntims de la seva experiència
dins del programa Vida Independent.

L’Ahmed va néixer sord i fa uns 25 anys va començar a perdre la vista. Va passar per diversos recursos residencials, però la seva sordceguesa no encaixava enlloc. Els problemes en la comunicació semblaven insalvables. Finalment, els recursos assistencials es van posar en contacte amb Apsocecat (Associació Catalana pro Persones amb Sordceguesa) perquè estudiessin el cas. I així va ser com l’Ahmed es va convertir en l’usuari pilot del programa Vida Independent.

#04 / El te dels dilluns

Després de tancar la campanya al Verkami amb èxit, ja hem començat la segona fase d’entrevistes i gravacions!

Dilluns vam visitar la seu de l’Associació Catalana pro Persones amb Sordceguesa (Apsocecat) per conèixer l’Ahmed, una de les persones sordcegues que formaran part del 5-2=7. Cada dilluns visita la seu de l’associació per prendre el te amb els seus mediadors. Sí, saben començar bé la setmana.

Quan vam arribar, i després de presentar-nos, l’Ahmed es va interessar per la nostra càmera: la va palpar de dalt a baix. Després van servir el te i l’Ahmed, un parell de mediadors en sordceguesa en pràctiques i diversos professionals d’Apsocecat es van asseure a esmorzar.

En aquesta ocasió, el te tenia un gust diferent dels altres dies, havien experimentat amb una mescla nova. Entre tassa i tassa, acompanyades d’unes pastes, es va fer evident que s’avenen. No van… read more

Ah! I per si no havia quedat clar... Gràcies! No ens cansarem de dir-ho. 

#02 / Sordcecs en caiac

El documental 5-2=7 és una joia. No només per l’objectiu que persegueix (ja ho sabeu, donar a conèixer la sordceguesa i les capacitats de les persones sordcegues), sinó també perquè ens dona l’oportunitat de viure experiències inoblidables. Avui volem compartir una d’aquestes experiències amb tots vosaltres.

Ja fa temps, en un bonic dia d’estiu (devia ser el 2014), ens vam sumar a una sortida organitzada per ASOCIDECAT (Associació de Sordcecs de Catalunya). Va ser una estada d’un cap de setmana a Banyoles. Hi van participar una quinzena de persones sordcegues acompanyades d’una desena de guies intèrprets. Entre les activitats que van compartir, hi va haver una sortida en caiac per l’estany de Banyoles al Club Natació Banyoles. El grup estava molt emocionat. L’equip de rodatge, també.

Abans de començar, vam documentar les sensacions prèvies. Per alguns, era la primera sortida a l’aigua. Altres, en canvi, ja ho havien experimentat.
