"An example of how the honest and truthful telling of a personal story is all it takes for a movie to hum with universal truths. What a remarkable achievement this quietly devastating film is."
Review by Yazdi Pithavala, Moviewallas
A tribute to the director's own brother, SHADES OF BLUE weaves together narrative, travelogue, and real memory to form a unique cinematic elegy. Shot on-location in Cuba, SHADES' guerrilla production spanned the island nation from the streets of Havana to the stunning landscapes of the Zapata Peninsula, and stands among the first-ever USA-Cuba co-productions in the more than 50 years of US embargo on the country.
Striving to capture the soul and rhythm of Cuba as well as its protagonist's unquiet mind, SHADES OF BLUE is the story of how we grieve and escape, hide and reveal, and finally love and dance again.
