Telmo Baldé’s eyes blinded almost three years ago due to a brain tumor.
Now he is doing therapy in ACAPO – Portuguese Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (Associação dos Cegos e Amblíopes de Portugal) for Orientation, Mobility and Activities of Daily Living.
For four months, therapist Sónia Manzarra helped him to walk the streets with a white cane.
Antena 1 followed this process; it’s a story that also summons the problems and the challenges of the visually impaired in Portugal.
This is a groundbreaking experience for Portuguese radio stations.
Through binaural sound technology, the listener tries to put himself in Telmo’s ears, in a ‘complete 360-degree’ experience.
“Hearing Eyes” is a great story by Rita Colaço, with Paulo Castanheiro as Sound Designer, in a co-production between Antena1 and iNOVA Media Lab, from the NOVA School of Social Sciences and Humanities (Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas – NOVA FCSH).
