This film was released on  Friday 27th March 2015 and is no longer screening.


Having suddenly lost her sight to a genetic condition, former school teacher Ingrid spends much of her time alone in her apartment, curious about the activities of her architect husband Morten, who is caring and concerned, if ineffectual. Ingrid begins to imagine a story, connected to her own experiences, about a single mother called Elin who becomes an object of affection for Einar, a porn-addicted loner who begins to follow Elin in an attempt to get close to her.

When Morten appears in Ingrid’s imagined narrative as someone who might stand a better chance of seducing Elin than Einar does, the line between fiction and reality becomes less distinct for Ingrid. Blind is a finely acted, thrillingly inventive debut feature from screenwriter Eskil Vogt, who has previously worked with director Joachim Trier (Reprise, Oslo, August 31st).
