An instant hit, CODA was met by audiences at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival with an absolutely rapturous response, earning a staggering four awards (an Audience Award, a Special Jury Award for Ensemble Cast, a Directing Award, and the U.S. Dramatic Grand Jury Prize. Its incredible ensemble cast brings to life the story of Ruby, the only hearing member of a deaf fishing family in Gloucester, Massachusetts. As Ruby struggles to find her place in her family and her world, her gorgeous singing voice brings her into her own.
Siân Heder’s heartwarming, exuberant follow-up to Tallulah (2016 Sundance Film Festival) brings us inside the idiosyncratic rhythms and emotions of a deaf family — something we’ve rarely seen on screen. In developing CODA, which stands for “Child of Deaf Adults,” Heder was determined to tell the story authentically with deaf actors. Her writing and direction — layered, naturalistic, frank, and funny — finds perfect expression in richly drawn characters and a uniformly outstanding cast led by breakout newcomer Emilia Jones.

Presented with Open Captions and live ASL interpretation for the introduction.
