Notes on Blindness at DocFest

DocFest logo

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.
