Documentary film about blind person screened as part of winter art film exhibition
“In My Eyes,” a heartwarming documentary film by Han Yi held a special screening in Shanghai on December 2.
It took Han six years to shoot the documentary, which is about the dream and life of a blind man Cao Shengkang.
Cao lost his sight in a traffic accident when he was only 8 years old. Afterwards he also lost the care and respect from his family.
However, he didn’t give up his faith in life. After taking a series of sports exercises, he decided to travel around the world on his own.
The documentary follows his journey to 34 countries over the past 5 years. It was also nominated for the Golden Goblet Awards at the 21st Shanghai International Film Festival.
Director Han shared with local audience about her shooting experience after the screening.
“It is not only a production about special groups, but a film that explores human relations, difficult choices and meanings of life as well,” Han said.
The film is also part of an ongoing art film exhibition titled “The Winter.”
In the following week, 11 recent art movies will be shown at 43 theaters around the country. Among the movies are Bi Gan’s “Long Day's Journey Into Night,” “When Love Blossoms,” “Blue Amber” and “Girls Always Happy.”
