Bleu Shut

Directed by Robert Nelson

Bleu Shut pokes fun at spectators’ impatience with experimental cinema by having an on-screen clock count down the film’s running time” (Chicago Reader). Robert Nelson’s short experimental video combines pop culture artifacts with ads and home movies, creating a game show atmosphere that comments on the search for pleasure. 1971, video, 33 minutes.
