Against the Light
by Mauro Marcantoni
Mauro Marcantoni’s Against the Light walks us through the lives of blind people; each overcome by the complexities of their lives risen due to their disabilities, each trying to hold on to the relationships they have with the people around them and each hoping to find what meaning they can grasp out of their imparity.
