SIGHT, starring Greg Kinnear and Terry Chen, follows the true story of Dr. Ming Wang, a Chinese immigrant who defies all odds to become a world-renowned eye surgeon. Drawing upon the grit and determination he gained from a turbulent uprising in his upbringing, Dr. Wang sets out to restore the sight of a blind orphan.

About the Director

Andrew Hyatt is the award-winning writer/director of the historical drama, Paul, Apostle of Christ, which was released in 2018, starring Jim Caviezel and James Faulkner. Hyatt recently co-wrote/directed The Blind, the true story of the Robertson family long before their Duck Dynasty fame, which was released in 2023, marking its strongest theatrical release which grossed 17.3M in worldwide box office. Hyatt's film Full of Grace is the first film in history to focus on the final days of Mary of Nazareth. 

Hyatt has been credited with paving the way towards a new genre of films termed “sacred art house.” Hyatt was awarded a 'Lifetime Achievement Award' from the National Catholic Museum of Art in Washington, D.C. and Paul, Apostle of Christ was nominated for 'Most Inspirational Film' at the 2018 GMA Dove Awards and 'Most Inspiring Film' at the 2019 MovieGuide Awards. Hyatt also received a prestigious Christopher Award in the Feature Film category at the 70th Annual Christopher Awards in 2019.

“I am humbled and thrilled to be a part of bringing Dr. Wang's incredible true-life story to the screen,” says Hyatt. “The universal themes of hope and endurance will undoubtedly resonate with audiences around the world. My grandmother grew up in Shanghai and to be able to honor her in some way by telling a story that echoes her own experience is a very special opportunity.”


The life of Dr. Ming Wang is a remarkable story of hope. In a time when the world is hungry for stories of conversion and redemption, Sight explores how the present is made possible by the past. In other words, we must come to peace with our past before we are able to move forward in the present. How many times has the weight of the past held us from immersing ourselves in the present and exploring the freedom of the future? Our desire is that this film will bring those conflicts to light for the viewer, so that they can be explored and, ultimately, peace can be found.

What is P&A?

P&A stands for “Prints and Advertising.” It’s an old theatrical industry term from back when movies were printed onto physical film. The term is still widely used today to describe the cost of taking a finished film like Sight and marketing it to moviegoers.

P&A is a crucial piece of the marketing budget for a film and may be appealing to certain investors. Why? Because with P&A, money is only raised after the film is already made and you know the quality of the work. Also, any potential return to P&A investors is paid directly out of theatrical proceeds–meaning P&A investors get paid right after the theater gets paid. So, it’s the last money in, and the first money out.

Sight’s P&A will follow the standard film industry payout model. What’s more, this P&A investment holds the potential for returns far faster than the significantly longer timeframe required when investing in a film before the filming process even begins. No return is guaranteed, so only invest what you can afford to lose.
