Blind Fortune

A film about the blind lottery vendors in Spain who sell ‘illusions” every day.

In Spain every day, in every city, you see people buying a lottery ticket from a blind vendor on a street corner. We move in the world of blind lottery vendors in Malaga. We immerse ourselves in their universe of moving darkness, motionless shadows and grey spots. At the same time we are telling the story of the winners - and losers - of the lottery, of the dreams and illusions that the blind vendors sell.
