Blue tells the story of a fallen kids’ TV mascot reduced to working as a waiter in an Asian restaurant. 'Blue' keeps his happy face on as he serves customers food; occasionally he's recognised from his screen fame days, but mostly he's ignored. One day bad news arrives. The urban alienation themed-film was awarded best short at Cannes Critics' Week 2011. Korean-born Stephen Kang moved to New Zealand in 1993; his digital feature Desert was released in New Zealand theatres in 2011, and was selected for South Korea's Pusan International Film Festival.

I think it's every filmmaker's dream to get invited to Semaine de la Critique in their lifetime. So when I found out the news, it was so surreal.
– Kang on Cannes, from a May 2011 Campaign Brief interview
