Robert Nelson (1930-2012)
Bleu Shut (1971)
30 min., 16mm

Hailed as a true masterpiece by connoisseurs, Bleu Shut is broken down minute by minute, with a clock ticking away its duration to save the audience the trouble of craning their necks to see how much film is left on the projector. Comprising “a boat game and entertainments”, this landmark film is ingeniously artful and extremely entertaining as it brilliantly toys with audience expectation and participation.
