Ingrid (Ellen Dorrit Pettersen) is a woman contending with the loss of vision. In trying to navigate a world without sight, she spends her days attempting to reconstruct the visual world as she once knew it. As she struggles with her new found predicament, she begins writing salacious fictional stories that slowly morph into fantasies of what her husband does when she's not around.
When real-life events seamlessly give way to Ingrid's creations, she is able to find a means to come to terms with her disability. Provocative, sexy and deeply-felt, "Blind" won raves out of its premiere at Sundance where it won the World Cinema Screenwriting Award as well as the Label Europa Cinemas Award at the Berlin International Film Festival the following month.
"Mystically beautiful!"—The New York Times
"It's a fascinating exploration of the things that can thrive in the soil of a jealous mind, fertilized by suspicion and a lack of sight."—The Los Angeles Times
