Director-composer Gary Tarn tells the story of Hugues de Montalembert, who was blinded by an act of violence yet continued to travel the world independently.
What happens when a visual artists is tragically robbed of his main tool -- his eyesight' Gary Tarn's remarkable, award-winning documentary, BLACK SUN, investigates this through the story of Hugues de Montalembert, a New York-based artist and filmmaker who was blinded by a vicious attack in 1978. Defying expectation, the remarkable artist continued to travel the world alone, learning to navigate life in a new and beautiful way. Through striking imagery and philosophical narration, director and composer Gary Tarn creates an expressionist, poetic meditation on an extraordinary life without vision, and the idea of perception in general.
