In 1983, after decades of steady deterioration, writer and academic John Hull became totally blind. To help him make sense of the upheaval in his life, he began keeping a diary on audiocassette. Over three years he recorded over sixteen hours of material, a unique testimony of loss, rebirth and renewal, excavating the interior world of blindness. Published in 1991, the diaries were described by author and neurologist Oliver Sacks as, 'A masterpiece... The most precise, deep and beautiful account of blindness I have ever read.' Premiering at Sundance Film Festival in January 2016, NOTES ON BLINDNESS is a multi-platform project based on John's original audio recordings. The project includes a feature length documentary and virtual reality project released alongside the film. 2016 Curzon Artificial Eye
