Blind Spot

USA, 2001 (MIFF 2002, Experimental)

Director: Michelle Lippitt

An evocative exploration of emotional landscapes, Blind Spot flickers on the retina like a poignant memory. Its conscious stream of fragmented images and enigmatically composed soundtrack slip in and out of focus like fading recollections of an all but forgotten event.
