Blue Diary

USA, 1997 (MIFF 1998, Experimental)

Director: Jenni Olson

An intimate account about a San Francisco dyke's one-night stand with a straight girl is voiced to a sequence of impersonal and static urban landscape takes. The combination of subjective voice working with shots of the empty landscape conjures a melancholic narrative of love and loss. Awarded Director's Choice at the Black Maria Festival.
