    Blindsight Vod

    Blindsight

    Lucy Walker (2006)

    Set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Himalayas, 'Blindsight' follows the gripping adventure of six Tibetan teenagers who set out to climb the 23,000-foot Lhakpa Ri, on the north side of Mount Everest. The dangerous journey soon becomes a seemingly impossible challenge -- made all the more remarkable by the fact that the teenagers are blind. Believed by many Tibetans to be possessed by demons, the children are shunned by their parents, scorned by their villages and rejected by society. Rescued by Sabriye Tenberken –a blind educator and adventurer who established the first school for the blind in Lhasa, the students invite the blind mountain climber Erik Weihenmayer to visit their school after learning about his conquest of Everest.
