Notes on Blindness
"In 1983, after years of deteriorating vision, the writer and theologian John Hull lost the last traces of light sensation. For the next three years, he kept a diary on audio-cassette of his interior world of blindness. This film is a dramatization that uses his original recordings. Recently, John Hull responded to the diary entries in the film, reflecting on his memories of sight, alarm at the onset of darkness and his eventual discovery of beauty."
