Film Preview: Black Sun, Tuesday 12 February, Filmhouse

9 Feb

On for one night only at the Filmhouse on Tuesday 12 February is Black Sun.

This is the story of Hugues de Montalembert, a French artist and filmmaker living in New York who was blinded during a violent assault in 1978.

Gary Tarn’s debut film is the portrait of one man’s extraordinary reaction to a life-changing event, an expressionist film whose power lies in visualising a world from the perspective of the blind de Montalembert.

Part-survivor’s testimony, part-philosophical meditation on the nature of perception, Black Sun is a celebration of life that makes us see the world anew.

I’ve found a few videos that may be of interest:
