Publicity About the SIGHT Film Project

Sight: The Story of Vision” is a groundbreaking public television documentary project whose major story threads are Science, Medicine, Technology, and Humanity. The primary goal of the documentary SIGHT, with narrator Sir Elton John, and associated planetarium film SEEING, with narrator Neil deGrasse Tyson, is to educate and inform the general public worldwide that vision is every human’s most treasured sense.

Sight: The Story of Vision is the first film in history to be broadcast with a color correction (CA) for the color deficient. The film is supported with a free iOS/Android mobile app called Second Screen that delivers synchronized content over the viewer’s mobile devices (http://storyofsight.com/second-screen/) and a companion eBook (http://storyofsight.com/ebook/).  A companion planetarium/VR film narrated by Neil deGrasse Tyson titled SEEING: A Photon’s Journey Across Space, Mind and Time, is also available for free download (https://vimeo.com/194574208/5b439807d4). It has recently been released by the International Planetarium Society to over 1500 planetariums worldwide.

SIGHT has begun the journey to be broadcast by PBS affiliates across the US and then is expected to go to international broadcasters this year, 2017. Check out www.storyofsight.com. This is the most comprehensive project on human vision ever presented to a worldwide public audience.
