Logline

LIGHT AND SHADOW

Christoph Keller is a blind filmmaker. On the set of an experimental dance film, he gives precise instructions while an assistant describes everything to him in detail. Time and again, interviewees explain how significant his work is and what it means to make films as a blind person. LICHT UND SCHATTEN is a mockumentary. Analog film and the outfits of the protagonists, which include a yellow pastel turtleneck and bell-bottoms, add to the impression that this is a 1970s documentary.
