In order to create a forum for her deaf students to dialogue with other hearing teens creating videos, she initiated and co-curated with the Museum of Radio and Television in Los Angeles, An Evening of Videos by Los Angeles Teens. Lieff is also the recipient of a National Dance/Media fellowship from the Pew Charitable Trusts and two New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) independent film grants. Deaf Jam is her first feature length doc.

Enter a boisterous young family next door who accidentally flattens Ove’s mailbox while moving in and earning his special brand of ire. Yet from this inauspicious beginning an unlikely friendship forms and we come to understand Ove’s past happiness and heartbreaks. What emerges is a heartwarming tale of unreliable first impressions and the gentle reminder that life is sweeter when its shared.
