Critical Acclaim

Told in four chapters, Vision Portraits is a celebration of the possibilities of art created by a Manhattan photographer (John Dugdale), a Bronx-based dancer (East Texas native Kayla Hamilton), a Canadian writer (Ryan Knighton), and the filmmaker himself, who each experience varying degrees of visual impairment.
