Beyond the light

This is the video filmed on the teacher’s day in Jugla Blind school in Riga, 1st of October. Blind and impaired students celebrate the day with a lot of surprises for the teachers, like dance, music, games.

I had been visiting the school from 2003 in a few times shooting pictures in total freedom around the school thanks to her director Ligita. I found Maja, Amanda and Louise, three girls blind that I knew in 2008. At the end of the video I talked with Louise and she remember me and the day when she shoot pictures with the Canon 5D to her fellows and teachers.

The documentary video is unfinished and I have to come back to find Louise and her friends to film playing flaute, piano and violin together.

Beyond the light want to be a documentary realized in the time that can help to the society to see more deep in the life of blind children. Many are the obstacles in the society to help for the integration, but it need to be as well from our side, not only from blind people.
