Blindness has a thousand shades. We who are sighted see only one. The human will to overcome the limitations of varying degrees of blindness. Simple stories can hide complicated fates and grand dramas. The characters’ energy and spontaneity are captivating and full of optimism. The basic conundrum how to show blindness through images. The black-and-white camera is focused on light and shadow, composition, and the protagonists’ movements as they navigate their surroundings. The music, complemented by expressively stylised sounds, immerses the viewer into the inner worlds of the six characters. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, never fear: A lyric from one of the songs becomes the film’s central message.
