Blind Spot is a documentary film that illustrates the current oil and energy crisis that our world is facing.
Whatever measures of ignorance, greed, wishful thinking, we have put ourselves at a crossroads, which offer two paths with dire consequences.
If we continue to burn fossil fuels we will choke the life out of the planet and if we don’t our way of life will collapse.
According to one review, it makes An Inconvenient Truth look like a sitcom.
There’s a lot of environmental films out there that while not painting a rosy picture still want us to feel a sense of hey things will still be ok, not so with Blind Spot. Director Adolfo Doring has, along with many of the scientists, economists and other experts, wisely decided that the time for coddling us is past, perhaps even too long past.
This absolutely beautifully shot ode to the end of our world as we have known it doesn’t even bother to try and convince us. Either you see the visual beauty of this world, city and country, and want to save it or you don’t.
Either you hear and heed the wisdom of the cadre of experts he presents or you don’t. There is no panic in this ?lm just an absolute and stark reality that we either choose to face or not.
Either way the film tells us it's coming and as one environmental advocate quotes nature as saying (and I paraphrase) either you do it or I will and if I do it I’ll remove things and most of them will be you.
