Okay, so today I have another short film I’d like to share. This time it’s less film and more documentary.
I love this idea. The film is a short documentary on visually impaired or blind children who attend art classes at a school in Philadelphia. The idea of kids – or anyone for that matter – who cannot process the world visually, yet creates art, is such a phenomenal one. I mean of course there are more ways of being artistic than painting or drawing – there’s music (to state the obvious one) and more. I just find there’s this whole new level – how does somebody who is visually impaired interpret and create something visual? It opens up a new perspective and a new approach and a new way of seeing (ahem) things. I love it. I love the idea.
The video is a rather inspirational one – especially when a little boy boldly and beautifully states that he was never meant to see. His path was meant to be this way. His bravery and self-assurance is remarkable. I’m blown away.
Needless to say, a little faith in humanity was restored today. The video is embedded below.
