Azul Profundo : Memorias de Futuro de un Entre-Vivir Cinematográfico / Deep Blue : Future Memories of a Living’s Cinematic In-Between   |   Sebastian Wiedemann

Blue as guideline into a cinema of receptive profusion and total connection with one's intrinsic sensorial capacities. Deep Blue as cinematic wild experience and experiment of thinking, as a radical adventure into the potential of an unexpected speculative scenario where the verb to blue gains uncountable affective tonalities.
