Despite what you may think, watching a movie is a similar experience shared by everyone--including the blind. At least that's what some people are saying in "Not Much To See," a short clip launched by Academy Originals. 

In this really sweet documentary look, outsiders get a sense of what it means to "see" a movie if you're blind. One woman, who brings her seeing eye dog to the theater, asserts her right to enjoy film just as much as a non-blind person. Another blind man says he is able to appreciate the sounds and doesn't need the images to get the experience. It's a heartwarming look at a different way we are able to experience art.
