Notes on Blindness

This Spring, The Box presents Notes on Blindness. An award winning and BAFTA nominated film, produced by Archers Mark.


In 1983, after decades of steady deterioration, writer and theologian John Hull became totally blind. To help him make sense of the upheaval in his life, he began documenting his experiences on audio cassette.

Drawing on John’s original recordings, Notes on Blindness is a  poetic account of loss, rebirth and renewal, and the discovery of ‘a world beyond sight’.


Screenings are daily and will be shown at the following times:
