    • Synopsis
    • This is the story of a friendship between a young filmmaker and a blind director of photography, between Sebas and Gabor.
      Hungarian filmmaker Gabor resides in Spain and has been making a living there by renting out high-definition cameras ever since he lost his sight on a shoot eight years ago. This is the meeting point between the two. Sebas decides to do a documentary about Gabor’s life: his adolescence in Communist Hungary, his escape across the border with false papers, his work as a director of photography, his loss of sight while on a shoot, how he dealt with this blow and how he reintegrated himself into the world of cinema.
      From that moment on, the film assumes the form of a metalanguage in which the relationship between the two characters is recorded, as well as their discussions about the shoot. For Gabor, it means the chance to return to his old job as a director of photography, and for Sebas it is a vital necessity. But they have to achieve it together by resolving one small detail: if Gabor cannot see, how will he be able to film? Sebas will be Gabor’s eyes and Gabor will contribute all his experience.
