“This is IS” is an ethnographic film series created by Annelies Kusters (researcher) and Jorn Rijckaert (camera and editor), consisting of six episodes on the practice and politics of International Sign (IS). It focuses on the uses of International Sign in the context of professional mobility, i.e. how students, teachers, translators, interpreters, performers, presenters, organisers and attendees use International Sign to interact across languages. This series engages with the following questions: What is International Sign? How do people learn it? Is International Sign a language? Should ASL signs be used in International Sign? How does IS work in the context of interpreting? What are the possible futures of International Sign?
