About the film:

After losing her sight, Ingrid (Ellen Dorrit Petersen) rarely leaves her apartment. She can still remember how the world around her looks, but the images that were once so clear are slowly replaced by darker visions. Ingrid suspects her husband Morten (Henrik Rafaelsen) doesn’t always leave for work when he says he does. Is Morten there in the apartment with her? Sneaking around, silently observing her? Or when he claims to be writing e-mails to colleagues, is he actually chatting with his lover online?

Featuring a stand-out performance by Ellen Dorrit Petersen (Troubled Water), BLIND is a witty and unpredictable drama about how our innermost fantasies and desires affect how we perceive the world around us.

BLIND will open in cinemas in the UK and Ireland early next year.
