A respected documentary director, Koenig has worked with a host of experts to produce a revolu- tionary film, "Sight: The Story of Vision," which will debut this month on local PBS channels on or around Oct. 13—World Sight Day. For the broadcast schedule, visit Facebook.com/eyedocumentary. Here, Koenig sits down with EB to share details on the vision behind the film, plus its revolutionary breakthrough that will assist the color blind. On Sight… This is the first film to be this compre- hensive on human vision. It's about the science, technology, humanity, and medicine of sight. The Film's Technological Breakthrough… After experiencing EnChroma glasses for the color blind, we developed what we are calling Color Assist, which can help the color blind see color in the film extraordinarily well. 300 million people [are color blind today]. Further-Reaching Effects… The tool we used to develop this—we are going to give that away free…to any other filmmaker who wants to make their film Color Assist. We hope [it] will become like closed captioning in the future. Even More… The film is an hour, but we also have a 250-page e-book companion on StoryofSight.com plus the Second Screen app— which provides additional content and videos as you watch the film, —Erinn Morgan k Documentary filmmaker Kris Koenig
