Synopsis: After failing to assert her Deaf identity to her hearing family as a 20-year-old, Jenny resolves to bring up her hearing daughter Annabel as part of the Deaf Community. Twenty-five years later, upon attending her grandmother’s 60th birthday party with Jenny, Annabel discovers that even she has her limits.

Duration: 9′ 57

Produced by: Neath Films

A family drama short, CODA was first broadcast on Film4 and the Community Channel in September 2011 as part of the BSLBT’s Zoom Deaf film-making scheme, having made its big-screen premiere at Wolverhampton’s Deaffest, and marked my debut as a film director and scriptwriter.

CODA has since travelled to film festivals in far-flung places like New Delhi, Hong Kong, and Miami.
