Red Like the Sky is a movie that tells the true story of Mirco Mencacci, one of the most talented sound editors working today, who happens to be blind. He was born in a small Tuscan village in 1971 and has been passionate about movies ever since he was 10-years-old. Mirco lost his eyesight in a freak accident and Italian law forced his parents to send him away to a school for the blind. In the 1970s, blind children in Italian society were considered hopelessly handicapped. The school Mirco attended was supposed to teach blind children an “appropriate” vocation. However, Mirco was determined not to let go of his dream – cinema. The film shows how he defies social limitations and becomes an award-winning sound editor in Italy- a prestigious role in the film industry. Red Like the Sky is this month’s feature film in the Spiritual Cinema Circle DVD club.
