Artist Michele Kong and I were given the opportunity to travel to India, and through the support of Unite for Sight (an organization dealing with restorative eye care in the developing world) create an experimental documentary with blind people. In each of the stories in our video project, visually impaired individuals are attempting to do something beyond what we, as sighted people, might assume they were capable of. The five stories depict: a woman learning how to drive a car ("An Unknown Lesson"), a blind soccer match ("In Defence of Obscured Realities"), a group of girls practicing martial arts ("First Encounters With Men"), a boy receiving light therapy ("3 O'Clock Patient"), and a man shooting his own film ("The Cameraman").
