This Brazil-Canada-Japan coproduction was written by Don McKellar and based on the 1995 Nobel Prize-winning novel by Portuguese writer Jose Saramago. It tells the story of the inhabitants of a city that is suddenly struck with a strange plague, leaving up to 90 per cent of the population devastated by blindness. A small group of the afflicted band together to triumphantly overcome the horrific conditions of their imposed quarantine. Directed by Brazilian filmmaker Fernando Meirelles, the film was shot in Toronto in 2007 and then moved to Brazil in October. It was selected to open the 2008 Cannes Film Festival and the 2008 Vancouver International Film Festival.
