Project: Feature Film, Completed
WILLFUL BLINDNESS is a mesmerizing story of a gun shot victim as he crawls home, the story of a mother supporting her daughter and story of a daughter who has been a passive recipient of the fruits of evil. A nonlinear, circuitous story that borders stream of consciousness, WILLFUL BLINDNESS rakes the boundary where distant memory meets a familiar present, where the real meets the dream, and where the unconscious seems conscious. This non-verbal experimental art film is a bold and stunning visual interpretation, a kaleidoscopic roller coaster ride through the madness of the mores that consume our contemporary society. WILLFUL BLINDNESS questions our survival choices.
