Disgraceful Blue

Digital Animation
Running Time: 10:24

A daughter with blue eyes is born to an Asian woman. Her family neglects the newborn for having the blue eyes. The woman, in desperation jumps into the sea with the baby, which shifts the perspective of the narrative from the woman to the baby. The story depicts the journey of a heroine who is “the other” in a conforming society. She becomes part of the majority by hiding her otherness only to realize in the end, her inner “blueness” won’t die, but it will only be born again in another form, in another generation.
