Title:

Blue and Red

Author: Zhou Tao
Description:

Blue and Red investigates the space of public squares. Shot in Guangzhou and Bangkok in 2014, the film captures people in the squares bathed in colors refracted from streetlights and LED screens, highlighting the contours of their actions and behaviors in new ways. This subtle theatricality that suspends reality is interrupted by the images of barricades, tear gas, riots, and thousands of protesters’ tents, that occupy the square but are also confined to it, raising questions about the connection between here and elsewhere.
