Blindness in association with PVR Pictures

Internationally renowned filmmaker and Academy Award-nominee Fernando Meirelles (The Constant Gardener, City of God) brings to life Nobel Prize winner Jos? Saramago's exhilarating tale of humanity under siege by an uncanny epidemic. Faced with a mysterious outbreak of blindness, governmental authorities quarantine the affected individuals in an abandoned mental hospital. As more patients arrive each day, the hospital cannot properly accommodate them, and systems begin to break down-food is scarce, toilets are backed up, and the dead lay unburied.
