The Twenty-First Century

Blindness [2008]

A town is suddenly struck by some kind of a virus, and everyone is going blind, except for one woman who seems to be immune to the disease. Though we don’t really know the origin of the virus, the movie takes us on a long journey of survival, hope and chaos. Sadly, it all comes down to nothing. Too bad, especially because the cast is really good.

Fun fact: “To prepare for the film, the actors, extras and crew participated in “blind camps.” They were blindfolded, taken in a car to an unknown location, and left in the middle of the street. However, there were always somebody there to guide them. Despite this, the director claimed that someone would always breakdown”.
