About the Film

Color Blind depicts an encounter between two Egyptians in a Victorian cemetery in Bristol. He is a husband and father who is working abroad to support his family, while she is on a two-week vacation that turned into two months. As they begin to learn more about one another, they discover that even though they come from the same country, they have almost nothing in common. The film examines gender and class through the perspectives of its two protagonists.
