Despite living in the world of sounds, the first language LEE-KIL Bora, the director, and her younger brother Kwang-hee learned was not words but sign language because they were born to deaf parents who lived in the world without sounds. Imagine how confusing or strange it would have been for the kids, who began using their hands first before their mouths, to leave their parents and enter the world full of sounds.

When she turned twenty, she realized and understood that having no sense of hearing doesn’t mean hearing no ‘sounds’. Since then, she decided to create a special and silent world in her film. Through her film Glittering Hands, she attempts to be a bridge between the deaf and the non-disabled.

The film invites the audience to the family when they joyfully sit around a Christmas tree after decorating it together. The lights on the tree are brightly shining and the film begins with the sound of a huge applause, silent but glittering. We are welcoming this new sensation, the world of sounds in which you can see, touch, and feel. [LEE Angela]
