Seeing Is Believing - S1E1: Seeing is Believing – Hacking Blindness
Joshua is a computer geek. He’s also a sought after speaker and soon-to-be Youtuber. He’s currently working on his first two videos – blind guy puts on makeup and blind guy folds paper aeroplanes. Joan is hardcore. 2 weeks after fracturing her cheekbone, she was back to running 10 kilometers on the track and lifting weights at the gym. Her aniridia and glaucoma hasn’t stopped her from being a national para-athlete. Liana is a self-confessed shopaholic. Her quirky style of fashion means that you’ll often see her in things that don’t seemingly match. She may not be able to see, but she can tell you when her Rendang is perfectly cooked. Rendi and Bo Sheng are brothers. They may not always see eye to eye, but at the end of the day they have each other’s back. Mihran is 6 years old. He suffers from Leber congenital amaurosis, which affects both his vision near and far. But with the help of assistive technology, he’s about to enter a mainstream primary school. These 6 extraordinary individuals invite you into their lives for an intimate look at what it means to live with blindness in Singapore. What will it take for the visually impaired to enjoy art on their terms? Are there limits to what they can achieve in sports? From YouTube to Instagram, from the sports hall to the Singapore Art Museum, our 6 protagonists challenge everyone to think differently about people with visual impairment. For the first time, you can also watch a special edition of the documentary with Audio Descriptions.
