introduction

NIGHT CRUISING is a documentary film following a congenitally blind man creating a film. The main cast, who has never seen light, reconsiders the fundamental concepts of faces and colors; expressions in two-dimensions; and finds a new perspective of the world through the varied processes of producing a film.
The movie also includes a short film directed by the main cast—a Sci-Fi action film, set in an asteroid in the future, about a congenitally blind man and his companions.
The filmmaking process enables viewers to witness a world consisted of ghosts by each individual’s, and the existence of a so-called “ghost” that appears in the fiction story.
