Braille Music - 無限亮 No Limits

A beautiful tribute to Louis Braille and a fascinating look at how blind musicians work together to create music in this wonderful documentary that hits all the high notes!

Braille, a reading system invented in France in 1824, made it possible for the blind to read. But did you know it also allowed them to read music?

French educator Louis Braille, who created the system, was also a musician and he adapted it for other blind musicians to use. It opened the door for visually impaired people to learn what the great composers has written for the world as musical classics. In this fascinating documentary, American fi lmmaker Michael House brings together six blind musicians, ranging in age from 17 to 65, in London to record a tribute to Louis Braille. Braille Music gives a glimpse of the hard work that goes into rehearsals and recordings and shows top-class musicians practising their craft.

The film also takes an emotional trip to Paris to learn more about the remarkable story of Braille’s inventor. Blind due to a childhood accident, Louis Braille devised the revolutionary system when he was only 15 years old. Though he had a successful career as a teacher, his method would be used in education only after his death.

Braille Music is a wonderful behind-the-scenes look at how music is made and is a must-see for music lovers and history enthusiasts alike.
