France-based Chinese filmmaker Yunyi Zhu revisits the theme of blindness and perception in this elegant and poetic observational 16 mm essay film. One of the young girls portrayed in the film defiantly addresses the director in this brilliant work about how the world is perceived with the following words: "You are using images to tell a story with no images, but I think you will fail because our story goes beyond your narrative". But Yunyi Zhu doesn’t fail, he builds a new canon for assimilating the real by describing the way images get known and created with sounds, textures and experiences. (RS)
