CODA Film That Debuts at Sundance Today Was Shot in Gloucester

The drama “CODA” debuting today Jan 28 at Sundance, was shot entriely in Gloucester in 2019. The storyline is intriguing, CODA standing for “child of deaf adults” and revolves around a high school senior coming of age in a fishing family. We wish the film well in the competition and when released!
