SYNOPSIS

Born to be blind! A documentary tragicomedy about a man who learnt to see with no eyes. Hungry Buffalo is blind from birth and going deaf. He laps up books about Indians using braille writing and in one of them he comes across the Navajo medicine man Blackhorse, who agrees to perform a healing ritual, which could improve his hearing. “My name is Hungry Buffalo,” he introduces himself to all and sundry but the Indians find it hard to understand what he is saying but laugh merrily as his joy of life is infectious. Blackhorse is rather aloof at first. He doesn´t believe in this European romantic palaver. In the end, even he succumbs…
