Synopsis

Ingrid can see in her dreams. The way the world around her looks, her husband’s office, their favourite restaurant…memories. It’s when Ingrid awakes each morning and opens her eyes that she suddenly remembers she is blind. With her life suddenly and dramatically changed, Ingrid has retreated to the safety of her apartment where she can feel in control once again. Her imagination becomes her reality - her deepest fantasies, desires and fears provide a constant internal monologue. Inventing her own world to substitute the one she has lost. But how can she make sense of all that is happening to her and who can she trust now?

A playful, touching and thought-provoking story of a young woman’s journey to rediscover herself, her husband and the life that she once knew, BLIND is the outstanding directorial debut of Eskil Vogt, the co-writer of Joachim Trier’s acclaimed REPRISE and OSLO, AUGUST 31ST.

Scooping the World Cinema Screenwriting Award at Sundance, BLIND has gone onto win numerous awards internationally, including the Europa Cinemas Label for Best European film at Berlin, the New Talent Grand Pix at CPH PIX in Copenhagen and the Golden Tulip at Istanbul. Blind received its UK premiere at the 2014 BFI London Film Festival.
