Abstract/Artist Statement

Blind Eye is a film about a girl who likes to go out all the time with her friends; meanwhile, her parents always try to talk to her and do things for her. She never appreciates anything. She has a young brother who is saving up for her surprise birthday present. On her birthday, her parents bake her a cake and just when she is about to cut it, her phone rings and she leaves with her friends. Her little brother is just about to give her the birthday present but she has left the house. She goes to her friend’s house where they are all drinking. They decide to go out and get in a car accident where they leave her alone in the scene. When she is at the hospital, she only sees her parents and her little brother who gives her the birthday present and she realizes that they are the only ones that were always there for her. Blind Eye was based on a life-changing event that happened to me. I was inspired to let the audience know how we tend to never appreciate the little things in life until it is almost too late. There are moments where we are constantly on our phones and are too busy going out with friends that we never realize what our parents do for us. For instance, little things like appreciating when our parents fold our clothes or bake us a cake. Sometimes we do not even use the words "I love you" anymore. My purpose for this film is to show the audience that we never know when will be the last time we will see the people that matter most in our lives and that we should always show them how much they mean to us.
