The SFPL Library for the Blind and Print Disabled invites you to join us for a film, followed by a discussion.
Inside Man, which is audio described for the Blind and partially sighted, starring Denzel Washington, Clive Owen and Jodie Foster.  "An intense and explosive crime thriller.  The perfect bank robbery quickly spirals into an unstable and deadly game of cat and mouse betwen a criminal mastermind, a determined detective and a power broker with a hidden agenda."

Question:  How can a Blind or partially sighted person enjoy a feature film without relying on someone to whisper the visual aspects of the movie in his or her ear? 

Answer: Audio-described films include a second soundtrack that describes the sets, costumes and any visual cues that the director uses to establish place, create mood and foreshadow events.

Join us for a movie followed by a discussion about the film and the effectiveness of the audio-descriptions.

Sighted people are welcome.  If you find it distracting to listen to the descriptions while watching the movie, you might try closing your eyes. 

Please note that we must request noise be kept to a minimum during the film so people can hear the descriptions.

Unfortunately there currently is no option to include closed captioning for the Deaf and hard of hearing with audio description.
