‘Climbing Blind’

Please join us at 7.30pm (doors open at 7pm) on Wednesday 16th February 2022 at St Marks, Oliver’s Battery

Acclaimed UK adventure filmmaker Al Lee tells the story of an incredible day in the life of Jesse Dufton. Jesse was born with 20% central vision. At four years of age he was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa: a rare genetic disease that breaks down the retinas’ cells, and at age 20 he could no longer read. By his 30s Jesse’s vision was reduced to just light perception, with around 1 or 2 % field of view. As a lifelong climber, he flies in the face of adversity and with his sight guide and fiancée Molly sets out on a fantastic challenge – attempting to be the first blind person to make a ‘non-sight’ lead of the iconic Old Man of Hoy sea stack in Scotland.

The OB Community Films’ Team want to say a huge thank you to everyone who came to watch the film Dream Horse on Wednesday 15th September at St Marks Hall. It was wonderful to meet familiar faces again and to greet new faces. Your collective presence was the very best present.

Indeed, It was a night of ‘fantastic firsts’!

Our first meeting in St Marks Hall since Covid 19 and Lockdown.

Our first meeting in the newly revamped St Marks Hall.

Our first film show as ‘Gold Service’ Moviola’ members, thanks to the newly installed AV equipment.

Our first ‘child’ to be part of the audience.

Our first ‘card’ (as well as cash) payment evening allowing for admission, raffle and ice cream to be paid for in one transaction.

The feeling of community and togetherness was palpable and a real mood raiser and we sincerely hope that we see you all again next time to watch our second film of this Autumn Season – 23 Walks. Once again. Thank you to all of you from all of us
