As part of my research Blue was shown at the Performance and Gender seminar group. A very fruitful discussion followed the screening. With positive remarks and constructive comments, I’m able to build on my portfolio and develop the research. I’m grateful to my colleagues at USW, Cardiff for their support and encouragement.
Some comments from the group:
“A very captivating and moving film. I loved the message of hope. Very thought provoking and beautifully shot.”
“The poignancy of the woman in inner turmoil set against the beauty of the landscape is especially strong.“
“An engaging experience of a woman in crisis – her journey is challenging but there is hope in her turmoil.“
A tremendous turnout, considering the snow and blizzards.
Some comments from the audience:
“Congratulations on making a film about such a silent issue many don’t understand”
“A hauntingly beautiful film.”
“An intriguing, mesmerising and beautiful film.”
“Spectacular location and the ghostly edge alongside chilling atmospheric music.”
“..a great feeling of foreboding (which ghost stories should have) but not in a heavy handed way as so much modern stuff has.”
Screening of Blue @ Chapter Movie Maker
A delight to be bringing a short film back to the building where I made my first film at Chapter Film and Video workshop back in the day. Good to be in the room with other film makers and a variety of films.
Fantastic to receive positive feedback, including “a very powerful piece – subtle with many symbolic layers.”
