Degrees of Blindness

UK, 1988 (MIFF 1989, Fiction)

Director: Cerith Wyn Evans

Shot on high-definition video, transferred to 35mm with remarkable results, this a truly contemporary experimental work, looking at the meaning, the importance of vision.

Total vision is left behind in paradise. Instead we have the pleasure of degrees of blindness.
