Full film details

Notes on Blindness is a new documentary created by Peter Middleton and James Spinney, based on the award-winning short film of the same topic.

After becoming completely blind in his mid-40s, respected professor of theology, John M. Hull, began recording his thoughts and experiences of sight-loss.

Discussing a host of topics including his relationships with friends, strangers, family and children, the loss of visual memory, and the emergence of new ways of ‘seeing’, Notes on Blindness offers a startling insight into what John describes as “a world beyond sight”.

Peter Middleton and James Spinney have employed a veritable feast of experiences in the documentary, aiming to stimulate a range of senses.

Working with acclaimed Supervising Sound Editor Joakim SundstrĊm, the sound design is multi-textured, and utilises both the original recordings and descriptive audio of the events discussed, to help emulate a world of darkness.

This immersive documentary provides a refreshing commentary on the subject of blindness which is both melancholy and enchanting. It is also an enlightening look at one of the world’s most respected academics, as he explores the world and his relationships without sight.
