A story of a family and their journey to regain sight.
A family faces the life-threatening consequences of blindness until a doctor–who can perform a common, but revolutionary, surgery–offers hope.
A co-production with Manifesto Films, WZRD Media, and SEE International, Second Sight was shot on location in Bacolod, Philippines over the course of one week–documenting Joanly Lahioan’s journey from her small farming village to the city and her life-changing surgery that restored her sight in only ten minutes.
Director Cole Sax walks us through the production of Second Sight—the steps behind the concept, pitching, funding, casting, and more–here.
