What does it mean to have vision? As filmmaker Rodney Evans (Brother to Brother) confronts the loss of his sight due to a rare, irreversible condition, he turns to three visually impaired artists—photographer John Dugdale, dancer Kayla Hamilton, and writer Ryan Knighton—for guidance. Though each offers unique insights into how they have adapted their creative processes, what they all share is a refusal to let their condition limit them and a belief that vision is more than just physical sight: it is also imagination, emotional wisdom, and inner light. Through a poetic visual style that evokes his own increasingly sightless world, Evans crafts an inspiring and thought-provoking philosophical journey that redefines what it means to truly see.

This film includes both closed captions and a vision impaired audio track. Ask for more information at the cinema box office.
