What do you do, as a filmmaker, when you find out you’re losing your sight, but your doctors don’t want to discuss what the future might be? In Joe Lovett’s case, you take to the streets. There, Joe meets others who have lost their vision, chronicling their struggle and filming the efforts he employs to salvage his own remaining vision.
Going Blind is a unique documentary film that increases public awareness of sight loss and vision issues that can profoundly affect the course of a life. Joe has glaucoma, a disease that robs 4.5 million people worldwide of their vision. Over the years, Joe has lost a significant percentage of his vision and is concerned about how to address the trend, speaking with people who have already lost theirs.
Going Blind features a spirited cast coping with various sources of blindness across the US: art teacher Jessica Jones has diabetic retinopathy; architect Peter D’Elia suffers from age-related macular degeneration; Ray Kornman, an outreach coordinator for a guide dog school, lives with retinitis pigmentosa; veterans administration worker Patricia Williams has glaucoma; 11-year-old Emmet Teran has nystagmus; and Iraq War veteran Steve Baskis lost his sight in a roadside bomb attack.
