"POV Films Receive 9 Emmy Nominations Including Nostalgia for the Light for Best Documentary!"  by POV Staff, Blog / POV Films

"This documentary, while not the first for Frank, is about one man’s “life in a city that he will never see”."  Sound of Vision

"Yesterday while visiting the Bodies Exhibit at the South Street Seaport in Manhattan I participated in a second exhibit called Dialog in the Dark. Along with 9 other nursing students I followed my guide as we wandered through Central Park, crossed a busy street intersection, discovered a vendor cart, shopped for groceries at a fairway supermarket, examined a newspaper stand, visited a coffee shop, enjoyed Times Square, and even rode the subway. We diligently followed the voice of our tour guide, Frank, as he led us throughout the city. Using only a white cane to navigate through these obstacles would be impossible. So along with our newly acquired tool we also had to rely on senses we normally take for granted. Our bodies quickly adapted to complete darkness and soon we were touching and feeling our way around as we followed our ears and noses to the sounds and smells of the city..."  Joe Pennachio, Facebook
