Extensive eyesight loss and the possibility of total blindness - what would this mean to a filmmaker? A personal film by Rodney Evans.

About this Event

Extensive eyesight loss and the possibility of total blindness - what would this mean to a filmmaker? Filmmaker Rodney Evans (Brother to Brother, 2004) received this diagnosis, and made this profoundly personal documentary film.

Vision Portraits not only documents Evan’s own genetic eye disorder, but shows how three other working artists with visual impairments—photographer John Dugdale, writer Ryan Knighton, and dancer Kayla Hamilton— continue to make art with their changed abilities.

On the festival and theatrical circuit now, we are very lucky to be able to screen this film, that is screening at selected theaters in the country.

Afua Kafi Akua, filmmaker/performer, and program manager at ICP will moderate the post film talk with Rodney.

" an inspiring film, a funny and informative feature whose subjects were creative kindred spirits I’d never seen onscreen before." - Odie Henderson, RogerEbert.com

A Stimulus Pictures release.

Rodney Evans will speak after the film.

*Note: Please contact workshop@twn.org for #accessibility options for low vision viewers. We will have an additional screening room showing the film with #AudioDescription.

A presentation of Third World Newsreel, the Documentary Forum at CCNY and Black Public Media.
