A group of Deaf children playing charades opens the formally provocative Code Unknown. Set throughout Paris, the film follows a series of encounters between different characters whose lives intersect in moments of misunderstanding. At the end, Haneke’s film punctuates his tense narrative about the multilayered complexities of communication. 2000, Digital, France, in French with English Subtitles/Open Captions, 118 min.

This screening will be introduced by Alison O’Daniel

Alison O’Daniel: Are You Listening Series

Filmmaker and artist Alison O’Daniel’s debut feature film The Tuba Thieves stems from a radical inquiry into what it means to listen. As a d/Deaf/hard of hearing artist, O’Daniel’s practice moves across film, sculpture, and performance to investigate how we hear, experience, and understand sound.

In conjunction with the release of her film, the Walker invited O’Daniel to embark on a long-form cinema residency. Marking its first stage, the cinema series Alison O’Daniel: Are You Listening? O’Daniel utilizes the Walker Cinema as a space to further the inquiries she began with The Tuba Thieves. Her feature was made within and collaborating with a d/Deaf community; this series, however, examines films made by hearing filmmakers that prominently feature d/Deaf actors and characters in their story lines. Together, these engagements ask the question: “What does a d/Deaf Cinema sound like?”
