WORKING BLIND                                20MIN

Neil lost his sight from a brain tumor; Catherine
lost hers from a degenerative disease; Kevin
was in the wrong place at the wrong time when
a pile of bricks crushed his skull. All three
thought they would never
work with their hands again. Filmed at the
Carroll Center for the Blind in Newton,
Massachusetts, this short film tells the true story
of three newly blind woodworkers and how they
plan, measure, and construct projects with
power tools and buzz saws.

Directed and Produced by Cara Feinberg

rules.
