Ô•diz•m narrates a history of audism, a term that describes hearing discrimination against Deaf people and their culture.
The film imagines a futuristic museum display of various Deaf-related artefacts and devices that have sought to erase modes of Deafness and speechlessness throughout history to present day. This assemblage of objects, bureaucratic and biographical details, are used to sketch a brief narrative of “audism,” reflecting the way in which they have become charged with cultural meaning, and offering indications of a larger cultural situation.
