Director Mike Sandejas defends deaf student from senseless bashing

More nice people in the world, please!


Director Mike Sandejas was at the center of a viral post on August 2, where he shared a screenshot of some Facebook users making fun of the mistakes in grammar a deaf student from the College of Saint Benilde made on a post.


Sandejas is the filmmaker behind Dinig Sana Kita and he explained that this is the very reason why he made the movie, "Deaf people rarely have a mastery of English Grammar because they only understand English as used in sign language which is shorthand in nature. The writing ability sometimes is still being developed while in college. I am outraged by how people are so quick to judge others by their use of English. This is why I made the film Dinig Sana Kita. To open the eyes of hearing people to the world of the Deaf so that they will not be insulted like this."


He also said, "[N]o one should judge people by their inability to use English, whether Deaf or non-Deaf."
