A Spellbinding Documentary
19 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Unseen combines observational shooting with an expressionist editing style to mesmerising effect. Without any tiresome "facts" or omniscient voice over we are left to learn so much about these blind children; from Janeks observations with his camera and on the children's sometimes surreal monologues. We learn ultimately that these children are unaware of any "disability" we might label them with, instead they concentrate on doing and living and learning. We see them riding bikes and running, playing instruments (wonderfully) and singing, full of life, fully of their future. I felt humbled watching them, I don't have half their ability. Wonderful.
