Focusing on three artists who have lost a sense that defines their art, this immersive film essay examines what it takes to keep on going when one’s talent confronts a catastrophic challenge. Katie Dallam is a sculptor and painter who lost half her brain function in a boxing match. (She inspired Million Dollar Baby.) Graham Sharpe is an Irish musician who can’t play anymore, due to his advancing tinnitus. Alice Wingwall is a Bay Area photographer who lost her sight in 2000. Immersive images and sounds enhance this strikingly unconventional documentary. Alice Wingwall will attend, accompanied by her husband, architect Donlyn Lyndon, and Rumba, her third great companion from Guide Dogs for the Blind in San Rafael. Producers/Directors: Erinnisse Rebisz, Patryk Rebisz. (US 2015) 74 min. plus discussion.
