EXCLUSIVE: Teaser for FIDMarseille title bluish
bluish by Lilith Kraxner and Milena Czernovsky

Errol and Sasha, two somewhat disorientated characters in their twenties, are each aimlessly drifting through a city's gloomy winter days. Whilst the film casts a soft gaze on fragments of their everyday lives, people, stories, places and realities start to overlap and intertwine. This is the synopsis of young Austrian helmers Lilith Kraxner and Milena Czernovsky’s new fiction feature bluish [+see also:

, which describes “a fragile state of being, a condition or, rather, an atmosphere of ambiguity and longing”. The picture is set to premiere in the international competition of this year’s FIDMarseille, unspooling from 25-30 June.

“In bluish, we want to grasp a momentary condition, a state of being, an atmosphere we sensed in our surroundings and maybe even amongst our generation. In an attempt to capture these notions of uncertainty and ambiguity, and translate them onto the screen, we collected small and big moments of the everyday embodied by our two protagonists,” Kraxner and Czernovsky say in their directors’ notes.

“As we follow them, each aimlessly drifting through a city, driven by the desire for, as well as the fear of, the unknown, we reflect upon anxieties, insecurities, longings and the construction of identities. Embedding our protagonists’ search activities as well as their questioning of meaning and belonging into the spatial and social structures of a city, it was soon clear to us that we also wanted to talk about further worlds that are interlaced within their daily lives. [...] What does it mean to inhabit a body, a city, a space? How does the ongoing process of becoming and longing manifest in the everyday? bluish casts a soft gaze on small moments, gestures and shifts in realities whilst creating networks of connectedness and alienation,” they continue.

bluish was produced by Austria’s Panama Film, with the support of ORF and backing from Filmfonds Wien, Bundesministerium, ÖFI+ and the Steiermark Land. Square Eyes is selling the feature worldwide.
