Having lost his sight in 1983, just before the birth of his son, theologian John Hull began recording his experiences of blindness on a tape recorder. Lip-syncing his voice from the tapes to reenacted scenes of his day-to-day life and staging the vivid dreams he began to have, the filmmakers have created an absorbing documentary that explores a very personal experience of blindness. A poetic rather than a literal document of Hull’s symptoms, the film provides a uniquely visual representation of what happens when a person loses their sight.
This documentary sees experimental British director Andrew Kotting artfully explore themes of nostalgia, memory and place.
