Blindspot - Captioned and Described

Disponível em http://youtu.be/m79IuF3A4f4

Two young blind New Yorkers daily embrace the Big Apple, with its packed sidewalks, crowded subways, speeding taxis. Millions of people racing in a million different directions, all at once. Getting around can be a physical and mental challenge even for the average person. Now close your eyes. This production is a documentary about friendship, love, adventure and discovery. It's an intimate portrait of two young blind New Yorkers who daily embrace this city. Jamil (26) and Tamesha (24), met in fourth grade. Aided by Jamil's guide dog, they demonstrate everyday courage in a city that often doesn't "see" them. The co-directors, Amy Sewell and Catherine Fenton, call this a "visual poem, not a pamphlet" and refer to Stevie Wonder's words that "just because a man lacks the use of his eyes doesn't mean he lacks vision".
