Colombia's Television National Authority (ANTV) issued the law that regulates the implementation of access systems for the hearing impaired in contents broadcast through the public television service.

Taking into account the rights of the deaf and hypoacusic population and ANTV's role as regulator of the public television service, Ruling 350/2016 was issued. It compels concessionaires of television spaces at Canal Uno, open television operators with national, regional and local coverage, as well as paid television operators with self-produced programming to implement systems that guarantee access to television for this population.

 

Since 2015, Cartagena de Indias International Film Festival has had a space where movies are accessible for people with visual and hearing disabilities in Colombia. It's the "Movies for Everyone" project. In the festival's 56th Edition, the project will feature eight movies from the Colombian, Argentinian, Mexican and Chilean industries. These films will have accessibility systems such as audio description, sign language and subtitles for deaf people.

 

The film "Home, the Country of Illusion", directed by Josephine Landertinger, will have its premier during the 56th Cartagena de Indias Film Festival (FICCI).

"Home (...) is a psychological documentary... life decisions vs. fate, the face of a mother filmed by her daughter, a poetic journey into our inner home."

The movie, a Colombia and Portugal co-production, participates in the Colombian cinema official competition against films such as "The Nobodies", "With the Lips Closed", and "Wounded Night."

The film is spoken in Spanish, Portuguese and English and will be screened with subtitles in English and Spanish provided by ATmedios.
