From the producers of the Sundance-winning film To Kill a Man comes THE BLIND CHRIST a delicate parable, beautifully shot in the stunning Chilean desert. This controversial story is directed by Christopher Murray (Manuel de Ribera), a front runner of the prestigious new wave in Chilean cinema.
Michael believes he experienced a divine revelation in the desert when he was a child. His neighbors are incredulous and take him for the town fool ever since. One evening, he gets news that a childhood friend was badly hurt in an accident in a remote village. Michael decides to drop everything to go on a barefoot pilgrimage through the Chilean desert in order to cure his friend with a miracle, a voyage that will traverse the blind desperation of a society in need of faith.
