Blinded by the Light

’Blinded by the Light’ foregår i 1987 i Storbritannien, et land der til trods for sine problemer, formår at holde livet i gang med stort hår og farverigt tøj. Midt i tidens oprør omkring race og økonomi skriver Javed, en britisk teenager med pakistansk baggrund, poesi som et middel til at flygte fra byens intolerance og sin traditionelle fars stærke holdninger. Men da en klassekammerat introducerer ham for musikken af ”The Boss”, giver sangene ham mod til at snakke med pigen, han er vild med – og med kassettebåndet i sin walkman, kan han nu endelig finde de helt rigtige ord. Filmen er en sprudlende coming-of-age historie om en teenager, der lærer at leve livet, forstå sin familie og finde sin egen stemme gennem Bruce Springsteens musik og tekster.

Blinded by the Light

We all get inspiration by someone whose words or music or images touch our heart and speak directly to our soul. Javed is a teen who is living in the UK, but who is also part of a deeply conservative Pakistani family whose member do not understand the boy’s aspirations. While he struggles to fit in his school and wonders how to find his place in the British society, Javed discovers The Boss. From this point on, the boy’s life starts pulsing in the rhythm of Bruce Springsteen’s songs for good. Being an artistic young man with affinity to poetry, Javed has to balance between keeping good relationship with his family and embracing music that is symbol of the American modern culture. “Blinded by the Light” tells the story of a real person - the journalist Sarfraz Manzoor.
