Light Moves | Blind Cinema

Light Moves Festival at Belltable is proud to present

Blind Cinema by Britt Hatzius (DE / UK).

An intimate, inventive, and unique perspective on cinema. 

In the darkness of a cinema space, the audience sits blindfolded. Children seated behind describe, in hushed tones, a film that only they will see. 

Based on the method of Audio Description, Blind Cinema makes the experience of watching a film into a shared investment: a collaboration between young people and adults. Focusing on that which lies beyond the sense of sight, your attention flickers between the internal world of the mind’s eye shaped by a whispering voice, and the physical space of a darkened cinema. 

Capacity is strictly limited to 15 people due to the nature of this event. There are 5 sets of 2 seats together and 5 single seats.

Vaccination passport is required to attend this event. Wearing of masks/face covering is compulsory once inside the building.

Blind Cinema examines ideas around language and interpretation, along with the potential for discrepancies, ruptures and (mis)communication! 

Light Moves will work with young people in local schools ahead of the screening to provide the audio descriptions. Audience tickets are open to the public. 

Named No.1 Cultural Highlight in 2016 by Kathryn Bromwich in the Guardian 

Through a simple exercise and allowing children to really try, to fail, and star, Blind Cinema is a sensitive and gentle connection with a developing mind. Hannah Sullivan, Total Theatre (UK)
