BLIND EYE ARTIST – A Review by Jenn Rohm

BLIND EYE ARTIST – A Review by Jenn Rohm

Everyone has a story and this one is worth learning.  At the age of five Justin Wadlington lost the use of one eye in an accident.   He was raised in Philadelphia’s inner-city area by his grandmother for as long as she could and then he was given over to the city.  These are just some of the facts of his life the movie Blind Eye Artist shares with us.

It has been said that art is subjective.  While those in the art world are talking about his work, this piece is about him.  There are bits that art fans will get more out of than non-art fans.  You do not have to be an art fan to appreciate the story.

The film provides us with a chance to meet the man behind the brush.  From the impact the 2019 pandemic had on the release of planned work, to how the aftermath has inspired other works.  Using a style I found to be like getting to know a new friend, I enjoyed the flow.  Talk about the current moment (current when filmed) triggering stories from moments of his past.  This was a more natural transition between present and past without jarring the viewer.

While indie filmmakers do not have the budget for major marketing, they can make a film with heart, and care about the message they are sharing with the world.  This is a film to see and then tell your friends to see it.  We need more inspirational stories like this in the world today.
