Blind Flight 2003
Plot Keenan and McCarthy spent 4.5 years confined together, held underground for much of their captivity, at times chained to each other and to the walls of their prisons. The two men, who could easily have found themselves at opposite ends of a gun barrel in Northern Ireland during the Troubles, instead forged a relationship which transcended all that appeared to divide them. "Blind Flight" tells the story of this compelling relationship as they both resurrect their deepest memories, feelings, fears and loves. In their near biblical journey they uncover many of the forces which made them blind and captive human beings prior to their physical captivity. They finally discover a compassion for their captors which makes the film a 'love story' in the fullest and most humanistic sense.... see Blind Flight on IMDb

New Zealand released, PAL/Region 4 DVD: it WILL NOT play on standard US DVD player. You need multi-region PAL/NTSC DVD player to view it in USA/Canada. Languages: o English (Dolby Digital 2.0) Synopsis: Blind Flight is a superbly acted and intelligent drama of incarceration. The subject matter is almost painfully topical, but after opening with file footage of Margaret Thatcher declaring a firm non-appeasement policy toward terrorists, director John Furse focuses almost exclusively on the experiences of the two men, Brian Keenan and John McCarthy, while they were in captivity. Their social backgrounds and political views are important only to the extent that these elements shape their relationship to each other and their responses to the ordeal they're going through. This is not really a film about the mid-'80s hostage crisis in Beirut. The geopolitical context (the larger motives of the people who kidnapped them, for example) is ignored in favor of a personal story of survival. The gunmen who hold Keenan and McCarthy hostage disappear for days at one point, and the film offers no explanation. It's not a docudrama, so much as an intimate, psychologically acute tone poem examining what happens to two very different men (and, to some extent, their captors) when they are stripped of nearly everything that, on the surface, makes them who they are. Furse indulges in occasional bouts of unnecessary artiness, but for the most part, this is an effectively pared-down scrutiny of what kept these two men sane and alive during their brutal years of captivity. There's a terrifying and funny scene in which McCarthy listens in horror from the cell as Keenan is ordered out of the shower and refuses to leave, or even stop singing. This scene exemplifies a simple dramatic power, a purity that makes the film not only engaging and moving, but also deeply humane. Special Features: o Interactive Menu o Scene Access o Trailer(s)
