Allow me to introduce you a super short film called Life No Color, directed by Tazawa Ushio which apparently has won the Visual Award in the 14th DoGA CG Animation Contest. Probably you have heard of it, probably you have not. I just want to say how incredible this video is and how it is able to convey some kind of a message without any dialogues.
Yes, no dialogues and I should probably say when I say super short, I really mean it – it’s only 4 minutes long. Some said it’s like a music video but the music only has soft lyrics. I can barely make them out. Instead, what it has is colors and facial expressions. I love how these two simple elements when combined can tell a story.
I assume this clip is about discrimination in societies and how some characters desire and support for a society free of discrimination. Those in blue clothes symbolizes people from high class society, you know like the blue blood, or at least they’re of powerful and rich background. And then, the ones dressed in red are from the lower class society, which is why they get all the teasing from the blue ones.
Or something like that. I have not found the exact interpretation of this clip so if you’ve found it, please let me know.
In the mean time, enjoy =).
