BLIND SPOT is the deeply heartrending story of a mother’s struggle to understand the capacity of her teenage daughter’s mental illness. With extreme sensitivity the film explores the grey zones, or blind spots, in mental illness that are hard to discover as a parent or society, while simultaneously problematizing present day ideals that seem only to be built around happiness and success. How do we open up about difficult thoughts and problems, when perfection is the only thing one is expected to project to the outside world?
