Going Blind Previous Broadcasts

KQED Plus: Sun, Oct 21, 2012 -- 5:30 PM

This unique documentary hopes to increase public awareness of sight loss and low vision issues profoundly affecting the lives of more and more people around the world. Peabody Award winning director Joseph Lovett has glaucoma, a disease that robs 4.5 million people worldwide of their vision.
After years of slowly losing his sight, Joe decides to take action: to investigate how people all over the country respond to vision loss. His search begins small, with people Joe meets on the streets of his hometown New York City and gradually leads him to places and people around the country, of all different ages and backgrounds. Each has a fascinating story about dealing with the vision loss caused by sight-robbing diseases, infections and accidents. This program interweaves Joe's story with that of his fellow subjects and invites us into the intimate spaces of the visually impaired and blind.
