When John Hull’s sight finally vanished completely after decades of deterioration, the British academic decided to document his new world on audio cassettes.
This film, to be shown at Doc/Fest in June, is the story of Hull’s complex and articulate engagement with his condition. Doc/Fest is proud to be championing this project, which started its life at MeetMarket and was produced by Sheffield-based 104 Films.
If you are interested in attending, please visit the Doc/Fest website or contact Joanne at SRSB who is organising a Culture Club trip to the film showing and Q&A session on Tuesday 14th June.
The film will be accompanied by Notes on Blindness & Into Darkness: A Film and VR Autopsy, a panel discussion at ITV Town Hall chaired by Ingrid Kopp (Tribeca Film Institute
), which will celebrate the first time a film and VR project are being exhibited together where both stand alone as works of art in their own right. The virtual reality project Notes on Blindness: Into Darkness will also be presented as part of the VR exhibition at Site Gallery
as the European premiere of the complete six-chapter experience.
