Notes on Blindness

Pete Middleton, James Spinney| UK 2016 |Digital |90 minutes

Rated U – Contains no material likely to harm or offend


After losing sight, John Hull knew that if he did not try to understand blindness it would destroy him. In 1983 he began keeping an audio diary. Over three years John recorded over sixteen hours of material, a unique testimony of loss, rebirth and renewal, excavating the interior world of blindness.

Expanding on the award-winning short film of the same name, Notes on Blindness takes a creative approach to the documentary form, using cinema to complement the remarkable audio recordings. The result is a poetic and intimate story of loss, rebirth and transformation, documenting John’s extraordinary journey into ‘a world beyond sight’.
