A Documentation of Slow Blindness
on 01 February 2014
Writer and theologian John Hull lost light sensation in 1983 after years of slow, deteriorating vision. From that moment on, Hull kept a beautiful, deeply thoughtful and captivating audio cassette diary which the New York Times has turned into the narration of a short documentary film, "Notes on Blindess: Rainfall." Having just screened at Sundance, the entire project is currently being developed into a feature film by London filmmakers Peter Middleton and James Spinney. It's equal part documentary and drama and perhaps the most mesmerizing insight into the world of being blind.
