Barrier-free films bring light to visually impaired audiences


Fourth grader Chen Yuxin, a student at the Beijing School for the Blind, has had a life-long dream of attending a movie at a cinema.

Her wish finally came true in September 2021, thanks to a public-service project dubbed "Ever Shining Cinema."

Together with her friends and guided by volunteers, the elementary student attended the barrier-free movie "My People, My Homeland" at the Tiantongyuan cultural arts center in Changping District, Beijing.

"I was filled with excitement. I really love the movie," said Chen. "The project and its barrier-free films enable us to enjoy the silver screen, just like sighted moviegoers."

The Ever Shining Cinema project was initiated at the end of 2017 by the Communication University of China, Beijing Gehua CATV Network Co., Ltd., and Oriental Jiaying Media Co., Ltd.

It aims to produce barrier-free films for visually impaired people through dubbing to meet their spiritual and cultural needs.
