VISION PORTRAITS is the personal story of filmmaker Rodney Evans (Brother To Brother, The Happy Sad) as he embarks on a scientific and artistic journey, questioning how his loss of vision might impact his creative future. Through illuminating portraits of three artists: a photographer, a dancer and a writer, the film explores how each artist is affected by the loss of their vision and the ways in which their creative process is changed or adapted.
