If you haven’t already watched it, we highly recommend the movie CODA. It’s currently showing on Apple TV+ for free as part of the streaming service.
In addition to being a great coming of age and story about singing, it explores issues around disability entrepreneurship, carers and hearing. It is both moving and uplifting. It isn’t a true story, but it is a very authentic one that will be familiar to Australians who live with a disability. Three of the actors are really deaf.
Disability does not need to limit a person’s entrepreneurial potential but isolation and prejudice can. The objective of this platform is to assist members with mentoring, a resource library, webinars and educational opportunities.
It is great to see actors who live with a disability portraying people who live with a disability. Including the incomparable Marlee Matlin.
