Notes on Blindness

Dir. Peter Middleton & James Spinney UK/France 90 min Not Rated

2016 BOND/360

Presented with Outlook Nebraska and Radio Talking Book Service, a panel discussion will follow the film, and descriptive narration will be available.

In 1983, after decades of steady deterioration, writer and theologian John Hull became totally blind. To help him make sense of the upheaval in his life, he began documenting his experiences on audiocassette. NOTES ON BLINDNESS takes a creative approach to the documentary form. Actors lip-synch to the voices of the family, embedding John’s original audio recordings within compelling cinematography and textured sound design. The result is a poetic and intimate story of loss, rebirth, and transformation, documenting John’s extraordinary journey into “a world beyond sight.”
