Blind (2014)

Directed by
Eskil Vogt

Ellen Dorrit Petersen stars in Norwegian writer-director Eskil Vogt's acclaimed feature debut, a complex drama exploring memory and invention via its protagonist's blindness. Ingrid is in her 30s and spends much of her time alone in her Oslo flat, coping with her recent loss of sight. She's been advised to practice recalling visual memories or risk losing them. This she does, but her mind also wanders other avenues. Sometimes, she thinks her husband Morten has snuck back to secretly watch her; at other times, her senses spark darker thoughts. She also finds escape and solace in the narrative she's constructing about Einar, a shy and lonely, porn-obsessed man, and Elin, the Swedish single mother he falls for. But, as the tale progresses, it becomes increasingly difficult to separate Ingrid's actual experiences from those she's creating and frequently amending... All of which is superbly captured and realised by cinematographer Thimios Bakatakis.
