The Book of Vision
Federico Pascucci, Hanan Townshend
festivals & awards:
Eva, a doctor and student of the history of medicine, discovers a manuscript by Johan Anmuth, an 18th century physicist. In his Book of Vision, Anmuth focuses on the feelings, fears and dreams of over 1800 of his patients, whose spirits still wander through the pages.
Immersing herself in these tales and visions, Eva questions the separation of the past, present and future, while confronting the challenges of modern medicine and its limitations with respect to her own body.
