Russia, Documentary, 2020, 53′

A documentary that explores all facets of the flower as a concept, reflecting on its beauty, its history and its commodification. From experiments to achieve a specific color to an auction, the semiotic world of the flower is encompassed in the chapters of this visual essay.

Blue Rose or all possible facets of approaching the chromatic sense of a flower. A documentary in a visual essay style, we follow, with Olya Korsun, chapter by chapter, a narrative that shows us a personal archive, a flower market, the plantation and its production or a more scientific inquiry. We have the feeling of a puzzle that is being completed with increasingly exposed, complete and complex areas. (Miguel Valverde)
