With Pedro Miranda, Iris Palau, Isamar Gopar

Two people are closely related by unconventional forms of life and vision: Pedro Miranda, a young, blind visual artist; and Iris Palau, a clairvoyant.

Enlightened is a creative documentary with a touch of black humor and with an oneiric atmosphere that deals with mystery, blindness, arts, and experimentation. It bets on the exploration of the thin line dividing the visible from the invisible.

Notes on Film

“Enlightened wants to get close to the perception of a blind person — Pedro’s dreams, memories, and imagination — and of a clairvoyant — Iris’s mysterious approach to the invisible; and it wants to observe the eccentric and isolated life of Pedro, his enigmatic visual art and his unusual relationships with his family, friends, and animals.”

– Jorge Curioca, Director
