Neighbourhood learns sign language

Neighbourhood learns sign language

The entire neighbourhood of a deaf man learned sign language so they could communicate with him.

A video of the man - Muharrem - shows him wandering through an area near his home in Istanbul, Turkey, where he is surprised to see that everyone he meets is suddenly able to interact with him.

The scenes were shot as part of an advert organised by Samsung, who were promoting their call centre for the hearing impaired.

The technology giant arranged the film over a month and installed a series of cameras to capture the day.
