"A beautiful, accessible, and thoughtful work of art." (Charles Phillips, the Guardian)
A taped journal that theologian John Hull (1935-2015) kept after the onset of blindness in 1980 forms the basis of this elegant and moving depiction of struggle and transcendence. We watch the writer-played by an actor but with Hull's own voice providing the audio-as he learns to negotiate his condition and endures a crisis of faith. Sublime sound design further enhances this evocative documentary, making manifest Hull's discovery that the loss of one sense leads to the sharpening of others.
