Having recently lost her sight, a young woman retreats to the safety of her home, a place where she can feel in control, alone with her husband and her thoughts. In an effort to maintain a connection to reality, she begins to write a series of sexually-charged stories, whose fictional characters begin to inhabit her everyday reality. She is connecting with her lively, intelligent interior life to help her stop being someone who has lost their sight and can only look to the past, and to start contemplating a future. Blind is a story of a remarkable woman taking back her life.

WINNER: BEST SCREENPLAY – SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL
♦ Blind evokes a dreamy, dour fusion of Charlie Kaufman and Ingmar Bergman. Its flashes of wry humor are outweighed by mystically beautiful images. –NY Times
♦ This is a haunting puzzle of a movie, one to pick at, to unpeel, to see a second time through eyes that have adjusted to it. It’s also alive with tender, tremulous feeling. – Village Voice
♦ A witty, weird, beautiful Sundance winner. Stylish and engaging, and laying out a fine manifesto for the power of the imagination to bring us real-world catharsis, “Blind” is a magnificently clear-sighted film. — Indiewi
