Coventry-born critic turned documentary filmmaker Mark Cousins has repeatedly ventured behind the scenes of the moviemaking business in his work. In this deeply personal film, he turns the camera on himself as he prepares for surgery to restore his vision. At a time when we are assailed by imagery 24 hours a day on multiple devices, the filmmaker meditates on the role of visual experience in our lives and the contradictory pleasure and pain this derives.
