Sargy Mann

UK, 2006 (MIFF 2007, Documentaries)

Director: Peter Mann

An artist for all of his adult life, Sargy Mann accepts his total loss of vision late in life with admirable good grace and sets about readying a canvas for his first and, he presumes, last, ?blind painting?. The artist?s son unobtrusively charts the fascinating transformative process that follows.
