Notes On Blindness subtitled (U) 90 minutes.

After decades of steady deterioration, writer and academic John Hull lost his sight. To help him make sense of the ensuing upheaval in his life, he began to keep an audio diary. An immersive hybrid of documentary, dramatic reconstruction and highly sensory cinematic techniques and sound design. ***** 5 stars! Guardian

Many people have discovered - or rediscovered - the joys of cinemagoing, thanks to audio description. Here's some recent feedback:

"Last night I thoroughly enjoyed a film for the first time in my life. The film was Gravity. I had heard it looks fantastic, amazing visuals, 'spectacular, all descriptions that are not very useful to person with severe sight loss. But I'm a space-buff, I just had to catch it on a huge screen. I've seen IMAX space films before I lost my sight, so kind of knew what to expect. For Gravity, all I could see on the cinema screen were black and white blobs and mis-shapes of various sizes. But that's more than I can usually see in a film. The contrast of the white suits of the astronauts floating around the black of space made the film clearer than any I've seen in a long time. But without the audio description explaining what was going on the story, with its many long dialogue-free scenes would have been lost on me. It was absolutely gripping. I was on the edge of my seat! I really felt like I was up there with the characters. It was a wonderful experience."
