The Big Apple--packed sidewalks, crowded subways, speeding taxis--millions of people racing in a million different directions, all at once. Getting around can be a physical and mental challenge even for the average person. Now close your eyes. This production is a documentary about friendship, love, adventure, and discovery. It's an intimate portrait of two young blind New Yorkers who daily embrace this city. Jamil (26) and Tamesha (24) met in fourth grade. Aided by Jamil's guide dog, they demonstrate everyday courage in a city that often doesn't "see" them. The co-directors, Amy Sewell and Catherine Fenton, call this film a "visual poem, not a pamphlet" and refer to Stevie Wonder's words that "just because a man lacks the use of his eyes doesn't mean he lacks vision."

    Great to have these types of videos that helps VI young people and adults to know they are not alone with these issues. It also enables the sighted to understand issues that emerging adults have in entering the workforce, gaining independence and they just want to be given a chance. Thank you!
