Description: "Beyond the Light" takes us into the universe of the visually impaired through six blind people in Brazil. Their difficulties, joys, dreams and emotions. In upbeat accounts, they expose the reality of their lives and show that the road to a better life is through education and information. The importance of Louis Braille in this process is crucial and, therefore, Goulart went to France to discover the story of this renowned man who invented a simple and useful writing system, which opened the doors of knowledge to all those who can't see.
