Ancient Stories Told By Color
Just in time for the weekend. I remember the film Hero- it's one of the most impactful movies I've ever experienced around color. Yes, it was THAT powerful. I believe that color can help you tell a story. This film by Zhang Yimou takes that idea to a new place. (It's a foreign film with subtitles, so watch it when you're ready to read a little) The story is told through flashbacks from various character perspectives. Not only is each person's story different, but each one's story saturates the screen with a different hue. You'll see amazing colors like a lotus flower (571), blazing orange (2011-20), and a clearest ocean blue (2064-40). Check out the clip below to get a glimpse.
