Blue

New Zealand, 2011 (MIFF 2011, Shorts showing before features)

Director: Stephen Kang

A former children's television mascot, the puppet-like Blue has been largely forgotten by the world. Grappling with his own irrelevance and struggling to hold down a dead-end waiting job, Blue is shocked one day by some twisted, tragic news from his past.

Awarded the 50th Semaine De La Critique Grand Prix Canal + Du Meilleur Court Metrage Best Short Film at Cannes Film Festival 2011.
