The Professor and the Blind Girl

Penny McCann

2009, 07:08 minutes, colour, English


A young soldier newly returned from the battlefields of World War I finds himself adrift and alone, traumatized by the war and unable to speak. A chance encounter with a strange professor and his companion, a young blind girl, restores his power of speech and with it, his hope for the future.

Created with the support of Bravo!FACT (the Foundation to Assist Canadian Talent), and produced under the Charles Street Video, Images Festival “The Curse” residency program.
