Super-8 footage layered with Sharpie marker lines and circles obscuring the image illustrates this story of Thirza Cuthand’s experience with temporary episodes of migraine-related blindness and her cousin’s self-induced blindness later in life. Paralleling the experience of blindness with mental illness, she deftly shows that any of us could lose any of our abilities at any time.
