A sensitive program which gives viewers an insight into the daily lives of visually impaired people and shows how best to assist such people, especially the elderly. Simulated vision segments give viewers a true appreciation of what it is like to be visually impaired. The program covers hazards, clothes and storage, communication issues and myths, “sighted guide” techniques and more.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
