Summary In 2009 director Garrett Zevgetis googled the word "Beauty." He had been working on a number of darker-themed documentaries and was determined to find an uplifting story for a future project. The search returned a poignant Helen Keller quote that led Garrett to Perkins School for the Blind outside Boston, a renowned institution where a feature documentary had never before been made. He began volunteering at Perkins. On the last day of his scheduled term, a bubbly student introduced herself - Michelle had found him. BEST AND MOST BEAUTIFUL THINGS is a celebration of outcasts everywhere, following a precocious young blind woman who disappears into quirky obsessions and isolation. With humor and bold curiosity, she chases love and freedom in a surprising, sex-positive community. This film is a NY Times Pick of the Week. It had its World Premiere at the SXSW Film Festival in March 2016 and has received awards from Florida Film Festival, Independent Film Festival Boston, Superfest International Disability Film Festival and Tulsa American Film Festival
