The movie ‘Hummingbird’ was directed by Kim Bo-ra, and actress Lim Yoon-ah of ‘Confidential Assignment’ and ‘Exit’ participated in the narration to produce a barrier-free version.
The Barrier-Free Film Committee supported the production of the 1% Nanum Foundation of Hyundai Heavy Industries and sponsored the Korean Film Directors’ Guild in July last year at the Seoul Industry Promotion Agency (SBA) with director Kim Bo-ra and actress Lim Yoon-ah recording was done.
Director Kim Bo-ra said, “It was very rare to experience and direct a movie using a different sense than the way I normally watch. It was my first time doing it, so I was clumsy, but in the next films, how can I help the audience to see and hear in different ways? I was able to learn how to get closer.”
‘Lim Yoon-A continued, “I usually like narration, but the more meaningful opportunity of barrier-free narration came and I participated without hesitation. In particular, I was happy to be able to narrate the barrier-free version of ‘Hummingbird’. Not only was it a film that won a lot of awards at film festivals, but it was a film that I was very impressed with from the time it was released, so it was a film I liked enough to recommend it to people around me. I hope it will become more diverse. Also, it was a very meaningful time for me to be able to be with my voice this time in the process. I hope that you will continue to support barrier-free films in the future.”
