Blue

Short Film (Full Length) – 2011

M
Mature

Blue tells the story of a fallen kids’ television 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. Then one day bad news arrives. The urban alienation themed film was named Best Short in the Critics' Week section of the Cannes Film Festival, after just 10 films were selected from 1250 entries. Korean-born Stephen Kang moved to New Zealand in 1993; his digital feature Desert was released in Kiwi theatres in 2011. 

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.
– Writer/director Stephen Kang on Blue being invited to the Cannes Film Festival, Campaign Brief, 27 April 2011
