new year´s eve party

in a village for blind

Still 2011. Three days before its end I decided to visit a special new years eve party organized in a local culture club in a village for the blind. All this in order to continue with my documentary project – the story about this village and its people. This kind of party is an old tradition that last already from soviet times, when this happening was very well attended.

This year over sixty people have attended the party. More then half of participants are blind or partially sighted. Everyone has brought his own homemade refreshments and strong drinks. Party can start!
