The short documentary titled “Light from Lighthouses” won the First Runner-up Award in the category of Feature Video at the annual competition regularly joined by 50 major universities in mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau.


The documentary depicts a blind college student’s mental vision of lighthouses in her role as a curator for an exhibition of lighthouses for blind people.  It was produced by four postgraduate students, Wang Zuoyue, Tang Shiyun, Xu Yingjie and Zheng Jingsha, in collaboration with the Lighthouse Heritage Research Connections project of the Library at City University of Hong Kong.
