For this year's Sundance Film Festival London 2021, there are several captioned screenings and events taking place at Picturehouse Central between Thursday 29th July and Sunday 1st August. Over half the programme is captioned (films and Q&As) in an effort to welcome more D/deaf and hard-of-hearing audiences.
Highlights include Edgar Wright's debut documentary musical odyssey THE SPARKS BROTHERS, Sian Heder's festival-record-breaking CODA, a warm-hearted comedy-drama following the hearing daughter of two deaf parents as she navigates helping her family run their struggling fishing business, and Janicza Bravo's Twitter-thread inspired ZOLA, an unhinged and stylish take on sex work in the States.
"...while constructing such a self-aware story, Bravo keeps the movie loose and free, jumpy and jazzy, filled with hip-hop and doo-wop, spangled with effects and with high-wattage acting." - The New Yorker
There'll also be captioned panel discussions for filmmakers and industry folks, covering documentary ethics in filmmaking, making modern horror, as well as a masterclass with director-producer Phyllida Lloyd (Mamma Mia, The Iron Lady).
