"Thoughtful, slow-burning documentary.... careful photography, sensitive editing and an emotional score." **** Time Out.
Sabriye Tenberken set up the only school for the blind in Tibet, Braille Without Borders. Together with world-renowned and blind mountaineer Erik Weihenmayer, she took a group of blind students on an epic journey to climb Lhakpa Ri, a 7,000 metre peak close to Mount Everest's north face. What seems like a dangerous if not impossible challenge makes for an incredible journey, far beyond anything they could have imagined.
All screenings in Cinema 1 will be audio described for viewers with visual impairments. Please collect headsets from the Box Office.
We are pleased to announce that Blindsight director Lucy Walker will be hosting a Q&A over the opening weekend. Details to be confirmed.
