EARTH OF THE BLIND

This film is impossible to explain by usual plot and character formulas. The film is a unique synthesis of image and sound that pushes viewers to the border of the world graspable for human senses. Boundaries between visible and invisible, audible and inaudible are being blurred. The atmosphere, sounds and people of Earth of the Blind invite one to stop, listen and evaluate human existence in the alienated world.
 
20 years after the creation of the film, the team gathers again to restore its authentic images and sounds. Digitalized and restored, film offers a unique possibility to see it as it was seen twenty years ago. Earth of the Blind is the first film resurrected to new life in the frames of Anthology of Lithuanian Documentary Cinema Project, implemented by public organization Meno Avilys.
