When John Hull’s sight finally vanished completely after decades of deterioration, the writer and academic decided to document his new world on audio cassettes. In this innovative hybrid feature, following on from the Emmy Award-winning short film of the same name, co-directors Peter Middleton and James Spinney use actors to lip sync the diaries, telling the story of Hull’s complex and articulate engagement with his condition. To step into Hull’s world, try the Notes on Blindness: Into Darkness virtual reality project in Site Gallery and the Showroom Café.
