Electric Indigo

a film by Jean-Julien Collette

24 min - 2013 - Belgium / France

It is sometimes complicated for a little girl to face peer pressure and becoming aware of her own identity, especially that she never knew her mother and that the only reference is the love of two heterosexual fathers united by the bonds of a “non-carnal” marriage.

Jean-Julien Collette
Jean-Julien Collette (Brussels - 1978) is an autodidact Belgian filmmaker based in Madrid. Bitten by the cinema bug at the age of eight, he promised his father that one day he would become a film director. Many years later, he is fulfilling his dream with five short films to his credit totaling up to 400 selections and 90 awards in film festivals (such as Karlovy Vary, Montreal World, Palm Springs Shorts, Clermont Ferrand...). "Electric Indigo" is his first solo work and marks a change of direction towards a hand-held camera style and a colorful aesthetic. In this film, he explores his favorite themes in more depth; the sexuality and the unstructured family in a modern and pluralistic society. He is currently preparing his first long feature, "Rabbits", a supernatural thriller.
