Our third Film Night of 2013 will show "Blindness", a film based on the novel written by the Nobel Prize winner José Saramago and directed by the acclaimed Fernando Meirelles.
Join us to watch the result of this Portuguese/Brazilian combination, which was premiered as the opening film at the Canes Film Festival in 2008.
Synopsis: As a city is ravaged by an epidemic of sudden blindness, its victims are quarantined in a derelict hospital where a woman (Julianne Moore) fakes the illness to care for her beloved husband (Mark Ruffalo). From here, she leads an unlikely group into a brutal world that has descended into total chaos. With danger around every corner, how will they survive?
