Edition 361 for 1st March 2017
This week a very special and different Talking Vision as we share an interview from the UK’s RNIB (Royal National Institute for the Blind) Connect radio with filmmaker Peter Middleton, who along with producer James Spinney, created the incredible documentary Notes on Blindness.
The 2016 documentary profiles writer and theologian John M. Hull, who became totally blind after decades of steadily deteriorating vision. To help him make sense of the upheaval in his life, Hull began documenting his experiences on audio cassette which forms the basis on the film.
The film was recently nominated for four British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards, or BAFTAs.
Following on from this is a soundscape from the film featuring the voice of John Hull.
