The World at the Fingertips
a film by Damien Fritsch, 53'“I see neither forms nor light, nothing, absolutely nothing. But I’m not in the dark, I see nothing“, says Jean-Michel, who is blind from birth, like the other characters in the film.
Hamou is a bank broker, Lucy has gone into the first form, Belaïd loves going to the cinema, François is fond of horse-races, Farid returns to the place of his childhood and Judith and Jean-Michel have met thanks to music.
From everyday life to striking events, life goes on for them as for us. With them, we discover an universe which is often misknown, through the language of sound and touch.
