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—photographer John Dugdale, dancer Kayla Hamilton, and writer Ryan Knighton—the film looks at the ways each artist was affected by the loss of their vision and the ways in which their creative process has changed or adapted.
