Editorial Reviews

Product Description

What happens when a visual artists is tragically robbed of his main tool -- his eyesight? Gary Tarn's remarkable, award-winning documentary, BLACK SUN, investigates this through the story of Hugues de Montalembert, a New York-based artist and filmmaker who was blinded by a vicious attack in 1978. Defying expectation, the remarkable artist continued to travel the world alone, learning to navigate life in a new and beautiful way. Through striking imagery and philosophical narration, director and composer Gary Tarn creates an expressionist, poetic meditation on an extraordinary life without vision, and the idea of perception in general. Produced by Alfonso Cuaron (Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN, CHILDREN OF MEN) and John Battsek (ONE DAY IN SEPTEMBER), BLACK SUN was called "essential viewing" by Time Out and played to rave reviews on HBO.

Review

One of the most remarkable British films to appear for a long time. Scratch that: its one of the boldest, most beautiful and haunting films to have appeared from anywhereAn extraordinary evocationmore adventurous even than of the late JarmanExquisite, woozy colours ripple and refract, drift and fade lush and subtly melancholic portraits of modern society that recall Chris Markers landmark Sans SoleilBlack Sun is a film about blindness that makes us see the world hungrily, deeply, anew. --- Sukhdev Sandhu, Telegraph

A work for all places and times, for anyone who seeks fully to live, to engage, it is indeed essential viewing. ***** --Gareth Evans, TIME OUT No 1 CRITICS CHOICE

Innovative work of art that provides all the facts and anecdotes of a conventional documentary, but which immerses them in a mesmeric ambience all of its own. ---Nicholas Barber, The Independent
