The main narrator in "The Blind Man Who Did Not Want to See Titanic" is sound. Worldwide-known sound designers and foley artists, Heikki Kossi and Peter Albrechtsen, worked on the movie's soundscape. The team had an ambitious task: to recreate the sound-based world view of a visually impaired person. To achieve it, the designers consulted with the lead actor, Petri Poikolainen, who had lost his vision due to an illness. The star of Danish sound design, Peter Albrechtsen, will meet Belarusian sound producer Dzmitry Natalevich to recount how he conveyed the main character's inner shifts and tactile sensations via sound, reveal the secrets of creating foley and mix for films, and explain why this is true art.
