This highly unusual drama was a multiple 1991 Australian Film Institute award winner. Writer and director Jocelyn Moorhouse has fashioned a psychologically nuanced drama around the private life of Martin, a man blind since birth. Feeling unloved by his mother, he has put up a wall around himself to insure that no one will ever get close to him. Part of his rebellion against the world is his hobby of taking photographs.
When Martin befriends Andy, a dishwasher at a restaurant, Celia, his housekeeper, becomes jealous. The dynamic interplay between these three characters eventually ignites Martin's journey toward trust, a path that will lend new breadth and depth to his life. Proof is an exotic Australian film that impresses.
