Blue: The History of a Color
Watch one of my favorite films:
Blue from Three Colors Trilogy by Krzysztof Kieslowski
It is an amazing thing in life when your heroes become your friends. And so it is with friend
in the 1990’s when I was living in Vienna. And then came Gap-Toothed Women A clear addiction to documentary films ensued. Burden of Dreams.
Don’t miss this great interview with
Les @ Vice Magazine.
It has taken me two years to finally see this film that friend, painter and film buff Judith Eisler recommended so long ago. A fantastic and beautifully made look at the global visual culture that touches our lives every day.
One of the best movies I have
seen for a very long time.
