Film Night: Notes on Blindness

This Thursday (13th October) at 7pm we are showing the “Articulate, eloquent and soul-searching” film, Notes on Blindness.

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, documenting his extraordinary journey into ‘a world beyond sight’.

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 audio cassette.

Drawing on John’s original recordings, Notes on Blindness is a poetic account of loss, rebirth and renewal, and the discovery of ‘a world beyond sight’.

Following on from the Emmy Award-winning short lm of the same name, NOTES ON BLINDNESS premiered at the Sundance Film Festival 2016 and won the Special Jury Prize at San Francisco International Film Festival. It is an ambitious and groundbreaking work, both affecting and innovative – and one of the most essential British documentaries of the year.
