Pictures in the Park: Notes on Blindness (2015)

19th December 2016

Notes on Blindness (U)
Monday 19 December, Start 7pm

Directed by: Peter Middleton, James Spinney Genre: Documentary Language: English

After losing sight, John Hull knew that if he did not try to understand blindness it would destroy him.

In 1983, he began to keep an audio diary to help him make sense of the forthcoming upheaval in his life. Based on these original recordings and his published diaries Touching the Rock, Notes on Blindness recreates Hull’s fascinating and deeply moving experiences through a clever mixture of documentary, dramatic reconstruction and highly sensory cinematic techniques and sound design.

John’s recordings form a unique testimony of loss, rebirth and renewal, documenting his discovery of ‘a world beyond sight’.

Notes on Blindness is an ambitious and groundbreaking work; one of the most essential British documentaries of the year.

Tickets £4.50 available online soon and on the door.
