When assailants fling paint thinner into Hugues de Montalembert’s eyes during a brutal home invasion, the French artist’s world is suddenly plunged into darkness. In this haunting, first-person documentary, de Montalembert narrates his long journey back from that abyss: the painful months of rehab, the strange, erotic visions, his attempts to reassert his independence and eventually attain a different kind of vision, reclaiming his identity as an artist.
