Blind Cinema (11am)

Friday 22nd April, 2016

The Electric Cinema Screen 2 | 11:00

The art of audio description, in the form of whispered narration by a group of school children.

As you enter the auditorium, you are blindfolded. Images flicker on the screen, but all you have to go on is the film’s soundtrack, and the whispered narration provided by a group of schoolchildren.

Artist Britt Hatzius has devised a powerful and thought-provoking experience, partly inspired by the art of audio description. The film she has made will never be seen by anyone other than herself and her young narrators, and even they will only see it today for the first time.

Blind Cinema will also take place at 2pm.
