Synopsis



In 1983, after decades of steady deterioration, writer and academic John Hull became totally blind. To help him make sense of the upheaval in his life, he began keeping a diary on audiocassette. Over three years, he recorded over 16 hours of material, a unique testimony of loss, rebirth and renewal, excavating the interior world of blindness. Published in 1991, the diaries were described by author and neurologist Oliver Sacks as "a masterpiece... The most precise, deep and beautiful account of blindness I have ever read." Premiering at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, Notes on Blindness is a multi-platform project based on John’s original audio recordings. The project includes a feature-length documentary and virtual reality project [see NotesOnBlindness.co.uk] released alongside the film.
