Blind Spot; Moments Unseen

A vision quest documentary, Blind Spot; Moments Unseen features three visually impaired adventurers who journey by horseback into the heart of the Andes.

Blind Spot; Moments Unseen documents the epic, horse-powered trek of Carly, Ruth and Terry, who overcome countless challenges on their mountain pilgrimage. During a 3-week guided expedition in the wilderness of Argentina's Northern Patagonia, the riders chart a route of inner exploration to discover a place where blindness leads to clarity and disability creates possibility.

The Andes provide a mythical metaphor for life's gauntlet of physical - and figurative - blindness. Blind Spot; Moments Unseen evolves in an environment that awakens the blind riders' and theirsighted guides' untapped senses. This juxtaposition of perceptions expands our perspective onhow we choose to interpret everyday obstacles.

Blind Spot; Moments Unseen defies the conventional views on blindness to chronicle aninspirational journey of self-discovery, in search of what we see, what we can't see, and what we overlook.
