“YOU REALLY APPRECIATE HOW POWERFUL LIGHT IS AFTER YOU GO BLIND”

SONIA SOBERATS, PHOTOGRAPHER, NEW YORK CITY

SHOT IN THE DARK

A DOCUMENTARY BY FRANK AMANN

A BLIND PERSON IS PROBABLY THE LEAST PERSON YOU’D EXPECT TO BE A PHOTOGRAPHER. SHOT IN THE DARK IS AN INTIMATE PORTRAIT OF THREE SUCCESSFUL ARTISTS WHO HAVE ONE THING IN COMMON: VISUAL IMPAIRMENT AS A STARTING POINT FOR THEIR VISUAL EXPLORATIONS. THIS FILM POSES FUNDAMENTAL QUESTIONS ABOUT SEEING AND THE IMAGINATION AND ENRICHES OUR UNDERSTANDING OF PERCEPTION AND CREATION. WE ALL CLOSE OUR EYES IN SLEEP, THE SIGHTED AND BLIND ALIKE, AND IN OUR DREAMS – WE SEE.
