Blind Cinema

Ever go to movie and put on a blindfold? Us neither. But we’re thinking about it. As part of Blind Cinema, audience members will test the limits of language, sitting blindfolded a row behind children as they describe a film that has had dialogue removed from the soundtrack. So, not only are you unable to see, but you’ll only know what’s happening on the screen by how children make sense of it. Oh, and the children describing the film have never seen it before. Bizarre? Perhaps. Brilliant? Absolutely. This experience might restore the reputation of blindfolds in cinema that was sacrificed on the altar of the 50 Shades trilogy.
