Troi Lee founded Deaf Rave, an event for ‘deafies’ who share his love of music and partying despite people’s preconceptions. Deaf people are twice as likely to suffer from depression as hearing people, and there’s still stigma attached to being a deaf music fan. They feel they are one of the most marginalised groups in society, owing to their isolation, unemployment, lack of British Sign Language and the daily frustrations of communication barriers.

The film, directed by Coral Brown, forms part of 'Beyond the Screen' a series of short films commissioned by Facebook to champion groups that use their platform to overcome adversity and achieve social change in the real world.
