Dir. Rodney Evans - 2019 - USA
A deeply personal documentary by award-winning filmmaker Rodney Evans, as he explores how his loss of vision may impact his creative future, and what it means to be a blind or visually impaired creative artist. It’s a celebration of the possibilities of art created by photographer John Dugdale, dancer Kayla Hamilton, writer Ryan Knighton and the filmmaker himself, who each experience varying degrees of visual impairment. Using archival material alongside new illuminating interviews and observational footage of the artists at work, Evans has created a tantalising meditation on blindness and creativity, a sensual work that opens our minds to new possibilities.
"There’s a sense of poetry, light, and movement in Vision Portraits, a full sensual experience. The film’s visual perspective shifts often, demonstrating for the viewer how each artist sees. No one person is blind in the exact same way." Hyperallergic http://ow.ly/jczw50BoYRL
