    • Synopsis
    • Benedito Sena has been blind since he was seven. Perhaps for that very reason, his life and poems are so strongly imagetic; maybe also for that reason, he decided to move to Paris, City of Lights, where he met and married Jean, who is somewhat his eyes. It was also in Paris he met another Benedito - Ferreira -, film director and equally from Brazil. That encounter created a film that is a reflection on image and its place in the life of one blind man, as well as in ours. Mixing staging, direct cinema and mobile videos shot by Benedito Sena and Jean to the intimate capture of the messages exchanged by character and director, they build a film that is at once a window into the life of a couple, performance and a debate on image in a world so saturated by them.
