Notes on Blindness

England 2013, Doc., 12 Min., OV/d/f
Directors: Peter Middleton / James Spinney

After losing sight, John Hull knew that if he did not try to understand blindness it would destroy him. In 1983, he began keeping an audio diary. John’s recordings form a unique testimony of loss, rebirth and renewal, documenting his discovery of «a world beyond sight». And this short film delivers an outstanding visual translation of it.
