A blurred image of a park with people walking in it and trees and buildings in the background. The image is circular, surrounded by black.

A documentary narrative about Patricia Livingstone, a deafblind, lesbian artist facing a series of losses and gains. The film weaves intimate, real time scenes shot over the course of eight years with home videos and photographs, relaying the story of a woman whose spark did not fade even in the face of hardship and loss. Screening with local short film, Blind Spot, exploring and attempting to simulate the experience of visual impairment.

After the screening, filmmaker and poet, Ross Wilcock, and film journalist and accessibility consultant, Charlotte Little, will respond to the films and discuss the experiences of Deaf and Disabled LGBTQIA+ people. Blindsided and Blind Spot will also be available on SQIFF’s Vimeo on Demand channel between 5 and 18 October.
