Truly inspiring piece of film!!!
20 September 2006 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Every once in a while a film comes along that makes you want to forgot about everything else and change the world. BLINDSIGHT is one of these films! Blindsight is a gripping adventure of six blind Tibetan teenagers who set out to climb the 23,000 ft mountain right next to Mount Everest. The teenagers are brought together by Sabriye Tenberken, who opened a school for the blind in Tibet. She and her students with the help of Erik Weihenmayer (the first blind person to summit Everest) set out to prove that they are no less able than their seeing counterparts.

This film captures both the arguments of the climbers as well as their frustrations, despair and exhilaration towards the end.

Blindsight is a must see for everyone! Visually it is riveting and the landscape is nothing short of breathtaking. When I saw this film in Toronto it was a really moving experience and one that I would recommend to everyone. Well done to those involved!!!
