The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities states that signatory countries will take steps to enable people with disabilities to enjoy cultural works, films, performances and other cultural activities, and use places such as theaters and movie theaters where cultural performances are carried out. Against this backdrop, the relevant legislation is being established in Japan, and with the cooperation of operators of cultural facilities, such facilities are becoming more accessible and an increasing proportion of films have closed captions in recent years. As part of efforts to create an inclusive society through culture and art, this film screening will be held with accessible closed captions and an audio guide using the latest technology to enable people with disabilities to watch the film without impediment, ensuring that everyone can enjoy it together regardless of whether or not they have any disabilities.
