Rain changes our perception of space. It gives us a coordinate system of specific sounds in which we can locate and experience ourselves. Rain helped John Hull rediscover the world with his other senses after he had lost his sight. In 1983, he started to record his self-observations on tape. His original recordings form the centre of this film that opens a new visual space of experience to the audience. Precisely framed images shift the boundary of perception from the exterior to the interior world, from physical space to the space of memory and imagination – a poetic experiment. “Rainfal” is the first part of a series based on John Hull’s acoustic diary.
