>This picture captures the moment when a group of blind & visually impaired people “watching" a film in a theatre in Shanghai. There are 18 million blind & visually impaired people in China. The country is estimated to have the largest number of blind people in the world. Audio description service is not yet available nor common in this country. For blind people, watching movie is an impossible dream. In the past ten years, to make movies more accessible to these people, some volunteer organizations have been exploring ways. One of the ideas is Live Audio Description. The narrator sits in the screening room and does live narration while the film is playing. The photo was taken in May 2018 at Cathay Theatre (a historical theater in Shanghai) when a monthly live Audio Description movie screening event was taking place.
