Western Australian documentary God Made Them Blind will have its world premiere at the Film and Television Institute (FTI) in Fremantle next Thursday August 7.

The documentary which chronicles an amazing, faith-filled journey to help those suffering blindness in Bali has already been selected to screen at two film festivals, including the Sun Valley Spiritual Film Festival in Sun Valley, Idaho.

Written, directed and produced by Richard Todd, God Made Them Blind is an observational 56-minute documentary about how Australian ceramicist, John Fawcett, is devoting his life to reducing the enormous number of cataract blind people in Indonesia, after narrowly escaping his own death….twice.

God Made Them Blind was developed with the assistance of ScreenWest and Lotterywest.  

It will be broadcast on ABC-TV’s Compass program at 10:10pm on Sunday, August 17.
