An Eyeful of Sound

I was wondering before how does it feel to have to have a condition called synesthesia ( a rare neurological condition in which stimulation of one sense triggers the stimulation of another sense like hearing sounds, tasting smells etc. ). 
Samantha Moore, an independent film maker, made a wonderful animated documentary called An Eyeful of Sound where she visualized the experiences of synesthetes . She collaborated with a neuro- psychologist Dr Jamie Ward  and several people with synaesthesia in order to "animate the mind" of synesthetes in best possible way.
A film focuses on audio-visual synesthesia, a type of synesthesia which allows people not only to hear the sound but to also see it. Here's a trailer for An Eyeful of Sound and you can watch the whole movie here.
