NOTES ON BLINDNESS: INTO DARKNESS
EXHIBITED AT THE TATE MODERN
Our award-winning VR experience was exhibited as part of the Tate Exchange, in collaboration with Digital Maker Collective and the University of the Arts: London.
"Poetic and moving"
Based on the Emmy Award-winning short of the same name, Notes On Blindness is the debut feature film from Peter Middleton & James Spinney. The film utilises a creative approach to the documentary for m: actors lip-synch to the voices of the family, with the filmmakers embedding John’s original audio recordings within evocative cinematic compositions and textured sound design.
The film won the Special Jury award at the 2016 San Francisco Film Festival, the Storytelling & Innovation award at the 2016 Sheffield Doc/Fest, the Golden Frog Award for cinematography in a docu-drama at Camerimage, and was nominated for six British Independent Film Awards, where it took home the prize for ‘Best Documentary’.
