British dramatised documentary Notes on Blindness

Sydenham Film Club is putting on a screening of critically acclaimed British dramatised documentary Notes on Blindness at 7.30pm Thursday 28th September at a cost of only £5 on the door.

The screening will take place at Sydenham Centre, next to the post office on 44a Sydenham Road, SE26 5QF. Following the screening will be a Q&A with the two filmmakers, Peter Middleton and James Spinney.

Best Documentary winner at the British Independent Film Awards and nominated for three BAFTAs (Outstanding British Film of the Year, Best Documentary, Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer) in 2016, the film uses the original audio cassette recordings of writer and  theology professor, John Hull who, in 1983, became blind and decided to keep a record, an audio diary, of his and his family’s experiences.

The film will be screened with a heightened soundtrack so that audiences with visual impairments can enjoy it without the need of an audio description.
