Notes on Blindness – Movie Review

15 July, 2016 — by Ben Rabinovich0


In 1980s, academic John Hull lost his sight. It’s a process he recorded on audio-cassettes over a period of three years. Notes on Blindness gives shape to his voice in the form of actor Dan Skinner, who lip-synced John’s voice, and turns the tapes into one of the most audacious experimentations of the documentary form and created one of the most beautiful, deeply moving films of recent times.
