The film for August 5 is Vision Portraits by Rodney Evans.
“Acclaimed director Rodney Evans (Brother to Brother and The Happy Sad) takes viewers on a personal journey as he ponders how the deterioration of his vision will impact his life and work as a filmmaker. Interviewing blind and low vision artists — a photographer, a dancer and a writer— Evans embarks on a quest to learn how other artists have continued to create art and how their journeys might serve as inspiration for his own.” (American Documentary)
The documentary may be rented from iTunes for $6.99: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/movie/vision-portraits/id1485268559
