Extreme Close-Up
Directed by Lois Siegel

Bobby Pickles (drummer)

EXTREME CLOSE-UP is a documentary about young adults who are multi-handicapped, but who have one handicap in common: blindness. The film not only confronts what it is like to be blind but also presents these young people as having discovered self-expression through music.
