Dinner at the Blind Cow

From the moment you enter the restaurant's dining room, you're in complete darkness. Blind waiters take your order, help you find your water glass, and lead you to the bathroom as needed.

2004 ShortDocs Challenge: Darkness

2004 / Adam Burke / TCF, USA

From the moment you enter the restaurant's dining room, you're in complete darkness. Blind waiters take your order, help you find your water glass, and lead you to the bathroom as needed.

While some diners struggle to relax in the pitch black, others find eating at the Blind Cow in Zurich, Switzerland, a sensory delight. Producer Adam Burke brings us to the table to hear for ourselves, while he struggles to identify what's on the end of his fork.

Dinner at the Blind Cow was commissioned for the 2004 ShortDocs: Stories About Darkness.
