‘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.
