Blind Love – short documentary

Director Jenny van den Broeke (APVIS) | Producer ErnstMedia.nl | Project Brabantse Beauties, a program by Omroep Brabant

How do you find the love of your life when you cannot see?

Film maker Jenny van den Broeke attempts to answer this question in this short documentary, by filming the lives of three blind teenagers: Florian, Merel and Ilse. Their love lives as well as their ideas of what love should be like, differ quite a bit.

Florian’ sighted girlfriend Tara is graduating and wants to move out of town, while Florian has to stay in high school for another year. Will their love survive? After eight months of meeting on Skype, Merel is going to meet her Danish boyfriend in the flesh for the very first time. And Ilse is still looking for her proverbial ‘Prince on the white horse’, but she has a very clear idea of what he should look like.

In Blind Love, we experience love through the eyes of these blind teens by means of animation and ‘finger tip’ camera work.
