About the film: A city is ravaged by an epidemic of instant “white blindness.” Those first afflicted are quarantined by the authorities in an abandoned mental institution where the newly created “society of the blind” quickly breaks down. A gripping drama that asks, “are all things equal when you cannot see?” What implications does this have for our work as educators? Our post-film discussion will focus on the powerful themes and our assumptions about how we think, speak, and act amidst the dominant paradigms in which we operate [Run time: 121 minutes].
