WILLFUL BLINDNESS is a pastiche of vignette constructions pulled from the psychic shores of the subconscious.
Time is irrelevant for director and artist James Higginson as he rakes the boundary where distant memory meets a familiar present, where the real meets the dream, and where the unconscious seems conscious. These interpretations are woven through the relationships of three people, a gunshot victim(James Higginson), a woman(Marie Larizza) and her daughter(Morgane Kelly).
WILLFUL BLINDNESS is a mesmerizing story of a man as he crawls home after being shot, a story of a mother supporting her daughter and a story of a daughter who has been a passive recipient of the fruits of evil. On the films surface, the man reflects on what has brought him to this moment and to his relationships, on a deeper level, the film questions the materialistic, imperialistic and self-centered values of our time.
A nonlinear, circuitous story that borders stream of consciousness, an expansive abstract ...
Survival is intrinsic, how we choose to survive is more the question.
