CLIMBING BLIND


CLIMBING BLIND

UK - Documentary Feature (57:00)

Director - Alastair Lee


Jesse Dufton was born with 20% central vision. At age four, he was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa, a rare disease that breaks down the rentina’s cells. By 30 his vision was reduced to just light perception with around 1 or 2% field of view. A life long climber, Jesse flies in the face of adversity and takes on bigger challenges attempting to be the first blind person to make a ‘non-sight’ lead of the iconic Old Man of Hoy sea stack in Scotland.
