VISION PORTRAITS is a deeply personal documentary by award-winning filmmaker Rodney Evans (BROTHER TO BROTHER) as he explores how his loss of vision may impact his creative future. Using archival material, interviews and observational footage of several visually impaired creative artists, the film is a tantalizing meditation on blindness and creativity, a sensual work that opens our minds to new possibilities. 

“Evans has made a touchingly honest ode to the inner life of all artists.”
-Robert Abele, The Los Angeles Times
