Blue Bird

Blue Bird is a conceptual fashion short film about a girl who kills her innocence, the “blue bird”, in order to get what she really wants, power.

Director’s Statement

Blue bird is a conceptual short film, my idea was to explore literature and poetry in the cinema world. Inspired by the poem “blue bird” from Charles Bukowski, we explore the symbolysm behind his poetry. The blue bird is the representation of the innocence, a powerfull characteristic that is rarely seeing in society. Is the poem Bukowski constantly referer the “blue bird” as something that he hides from people in order to not expose his most valuable treasure, the consequence of that exposition could be death of the bird or his weakness to the heavy world. Keeping that in mind and exploring this concept I develop the antagonist the White Rabbit, another symbolism well know in literature to represent the guide to another world, like we see in Alice in Wonderland. The rabbit in this case is the evil that resides inside us and is always trying to consume our light or even better our innocence. Inspired in the bible and the myth of the first sin of Adan and Eve when they lost their innocence to the serpent, this movie propose the exploration of desire, power, evil, and innonce in narrative and intense visual structure.
