After nearly drowning, a young aspiring Latinx musician loses her vision and struggles to keep her restaurant job with a boss driven to get rid of her.
There is reality, but it all comes down to perception. Blindsight is about making this gap between reality and perception palpable by focusing on the act of seeing, and the mysteriousness of that.
Amy Guggenheim, Writer/Director
Amy is in development with two projects; her third short film Blindsight, and the dramatic feature When Night Turns To Day, set in New York and Tokyo. Her film work has appeared at Anthology Film Archives in NYC, The Georges Pompidou Center, France, and Sao Paolo Museum of Modern Art, Brasil.
