Over the Horizon

Russian Federation 2017, 5 mins.
Directed by Ivan Sosnin

This is the real life story of Alexander Zhuravlev, a blind photographer from Russia, who has taken a step beyond the horizon of his own possibilities. Losing his sight just 11 years ago, and with only 2% of residual vision, he began traveling and taking pictures around Russia and the rest of the world with the help of a smartphone. His story inspires us to examine our own limitations and appreciate a world of beauty that we often take for granted.
