Painter Hugues de Montalembert was blinded in an attack in New York City in 1978. Without a shred of self-pity, he relates his extraordinary story of how he adapted his approach to the world after blindness.

A poetic and atmospheric documentary about a filmmaker and visual artist who loses his sight. Wall to wall narration (story telling) from the individual and subject of the film. Wall to wall music. A sea of urban and abstract imagery. 70 glorious minutes. I found it be be very engaging and beautiful (moving and inspiring). This film left such an impression on me - I think of it often.
Poetic and beautiful in its interaction of narration and visuals Black Sun is a gem of a film! But I'm afraid that hardly anyone even knows about its existence...
I highly recommend this film to the world.
