SYNOPSIS

A Friend in Sight is a short documentary that captures a special relationship we don’t normally see in films. It takes us into the daily life of Wellingtonian Julia Mosen and her seeing-eye dog, Kerry. Julia has been blind since birth, but through the help of Kerry, she is able to independently and safely do ordinary tasks like going to public places, travelling via public transport and negotiating traffic on the streets.
