Storyline

A blind man awakes in what may be a forest. (What he touches or hears is in color; the rest of the world, when it is visible to us, is in black and white.) First he explores his surroundings. Then fear takes over, what he hears and touches and imagines, frightens him. He gathers his courage to assert himself, almost with bestial intensity. He realizes that people have gathered to watch him as a policeman tries to coax him out of danger. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Fascinating look at blindness and possibly at perceptions.
11 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

This short, nominated for both the BAFTA and the Academy Awards (deservedly so) is an excellently executed take on the world of a blind man. The animation, use of color and black and white and sound to create mood is great. Often what one imagines is far more unusual and/or frightening than reality. When you cannot see something and must theorize instead about what faces you, life becomes a good deal more unsettled, as with any limitation on the ability to perceive things or to simply function in a world designed by and large for people without such limits primarily by people without such limits. Fascinating piece of work and a prime example proving that cartoons aren't just for children, but an artistic medium in their own right. Of course, the same may be said about much of what was done at Warner Brothers, MGM, Fleischer and other studios some 45-50 years ago and more. Well worth seeking out and getting. Most highly recommended.
