There are storytellers...and then there's Siân Heder, the writer and director of CODA, winner of this year's Oscars for Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay. If Sian believes in a story, she will stop at nothing to tell it: Her first feature, Tallulah, took nine years to get the green light. CODA required her and her crew to learn American Sign Language to communicate with the cast. In fact, when she was making the film --- oh, we'll just let her tell it. Don't miss what she has to say about what makes a great story, the importance of persistence, and the need for creators to stick to their artistic vision.
