Scalarama Special: Notes On Blindness + Q&A

Past event
Saturday 26th September 2016, 4pm-9pm,  The White Lion, 4pm-9pm
Tickets: £10, meal included, in aid of My Sights Nottinghamshire

Join us this September as we team up with My Sight Notts to bring two of Britain’s best new directors to Beeston for a Q&A showing of the critically acclaimed documentary Notes on Blindness.

This beautiful film focuses on the experiences of blind theologian John Hull, who revolutionised the types of audio books available to visually-impaired people. Drawing on original recordings from John’s diaries, the whole film is expertly lip-synced by the cast, and the glimpse they give of his journey into blindness is truly captivating.

To make this event extra special we’ll also have VR short films about John’s experiences and a blind tasting vegan menu. There’ll also be a visually-impaired themed exhibition, all included in the price of your ticket!

What’s more, every penny of profit we make will go to My Sight Notts – so join us as we usher in an exciting new wave of innovative British cinema! Hard-of-hearing subtitles and a described video app will be available.

Thank you to everyone who came and took part in this screening! Thanks to you, we raised £250 all of which will be donated to My Sights Nottinghamshire and help them with all the wonderful work they do. Find out more here.
