"I only understood how powerful light is after I went blind." A documentary about three blind photographers: Pete Eckert, Sonia Soberats and Bruce Hall - three exhibiting artists. What do they see in their mind's eyes? "Even with no input the brain keeps creating images," says Pete Eckert. Sonia Soberats states, "I only understood how powerful light is after I went blind." A blind person is probably the last person you’d expect to be a photographer. Shot in the dark is an intimate portrait of three successful artists who have one thing in common: visual impairment as a starting point for their visual explorations. This film poses fundamental questions about seeing and the imagination and enriches our understanding of perception and creation.
