Notes on Blindness – To celebrate the season of Lent, Churches Together In Wirksworth & District present a screening of the film followed by a series of exploration evenings examine emerging themes through presentation, group discussion & reflection.
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.
Since premiering at Sundance in January 2016 (alongside our virtual reality project) the film has played at over 40 international festivals. It won the Best Documentary at the British Independent Film Awards and was nominated for 3 BAFTAs (including Best Documentary and Outstanding British Film).
