Desaturated

A Film by Marina Stepanska

Synopsis

Знебарвлена
“Desaturated” is a 10-minute visual comedy. The comedic value of the film is built on the fact that the character knows that she is a character in a film, and is trying to overcome the visual clichés without which we cannot imagine modern cinema. The main conflict of the character is in her having a colour that is different from the general colour treatment of the film. In 9 minutes, the character must bring everything to the same colour palette.
The film is set in realist Lviv, with a focus on the visual colour conflict of modern Lviv (old architecture that is chaotically painted in bright colours).
