Notes from the director
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.
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.
