Bong Joon-ho underscored the importance of subtitles when he famously said. “Once you overcome the one-inch tall barrier of subtitles, you will be introduced to so many more amazing films.” In India, subtitling is still, for the most part, a do-it-yourself afterthought, and many films suffer as a result when presented to a foreign audience. As curator and subtitler Sonali Joshi argues, subtitling is an artform in itself, allowing a unique interplay between text and image. In this discussion, she will expand on the tenets of effective subtitling, their importance in making films accessible to all cultures, and making the filmic experience more inclusive for audiences who are deaf and/or hard of hearing.
