The Last Image follows four blind people that have lost their sight in the middle of their lives. With them we dive into a world of blurriness, fading memories and deep emotions. As they tell us about the pictures they remember, we sink into images that have lost their intended meaning. What do we remember? How? And what are the images that last? As filmmaker Judith Zdesar states, “Blindness, in this context, is for me also a metaphor for a social (or individual) status: being next to one another without recognizing the other.” The Last Image is a film about memories, lost pictures and the process of letting go.
