The Blind man with starry eyes

Damien Beguet, Eric Frappa,  France 2013 23'

Film Presentation:
The Blind Man with Starry Eyes is a lovely tale for young children. Introducing basic astronomical concepts such as night and day, rotation of the Earth, stars and the Sun, shooting stars and meteorites - the show is also a profound story about life, knowledge and our relationship to Nature. In order to increase his power, a tyrant asks a wise old man of his kingdom to give him the secret which would enable him to extend his power and domination. Despite his insistence, he can only elicit one answer from the wise old man: “Look at the sky and count the stars”. When he realizes the wise old man will not give him more clues, the tyrant follows his advice and starts counting the stars in the sky. Step by step, a relationship takes place between them which will change the tyrant’s quest for domination into a quest for knowledge.
