About this submission

My goal for Blue is to show how freeing it is to feel as openly as possible. Often kids are taught to bottle their emotions up and label them as bad, private, or shameful. As a kid, my emotions felt too overwhelming to filter through my limited vocabulary and all that was left to me was chaos. Through child therapy, I was given tools to better express my enigmatic thoughts authentically. This film challenges what it means to be “emotional,” in the hopes that if we connect with ourselves in our youth, we can better accept ourselves in the present.
