What does CODE mean? This was the play that won the Oscar for Best Picture

CODA: Heart signals won the Oscar for best picture at the 94th Academy Awards in Hollywood, which was held tonight at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.

CODA is the acronym for Child of Deaf Adultswhich translates as child of deaf adults.

The now Oscar-winning film, directed and written by the American Sian Heder, portrays the story of Ruby (Emilia Jones), the only hearing person in her deaf family.

When the family’s family fishing business is threatened, Ruby finds herself torn between pursuing her love of music and the fear of leaving her parents. Her responsibilities include attending school and running the family fishing business with her brother Leo (Daniel Durant).

Fiercely devoted to her tight-knit clan, Ruby spends much of her life interpreting for her family (the Rossis), and is especially protective of her father Frank (Troy Kotsur, who raised the statuette tonight as best supporting actor) and his mother Jackie (Marlee Matlin). The renowned Mexican actor Eugenio Derbez also participated in the production.

One detail that the tape captures is how often CODA often find themselves in the middle of two worlds: that of the hearing and that of the deaf. While they may find some similarities between themselves and their hearing peers, they may also find that their upbringing within the Deaf community and culture sets them apart from others.

Many CODA do not identify with the “hearing world” or the “deaf world”. Rather, they simply identify themselves as CODA: a bridge between these two worlds, but not within either.

Millie Brother He was the first to coin the term and founded the organization CODA, which serves as a resource and community center for children of adults who are deaf as an oral, signed, and bicultural language, identifying with both deaf and hearing cultures.

Best film

Remake of the French “La familia Bélier”, with deaf actors in leading roles and the participation of the Mexican comedian Eugenio Derbez, “CODA” was left with the maximum glory of Hollywood and also with the other two Oscars for which it was nominated: best Supporting Actor for Deaf Actor Troy Kotsur and Best Adapted Screenplay.

This is the first best movie win for a streaming service, an honor that went to Apple TV+ in a market dominated by Netflix.

“Thanks to the Academy for allowing our ‘CODA’ to make history tonight,” said producer Philippe Rousselet. (AND)
