Saturday Short

Today's short is the trailer for Blue Alchemy: Stories of Indigo, a 79-minute documentary that examines the fascinating history of "blue gold", indigo, described as "a blue dye that has captured the human imagination for millenia."

The feature-length film includes on-location photography in India, Bangladesh, Japan, Mexico, El Salvador, Nigeria, and the United States. Filmmaker Mary Lance researched and taped stories of people who use indigo, such as a Japanese textile artist, dyers among the Yoruba of Nigeria, and dye-makers in Bengal in South Asia. (Read the film synopsis.)

A DVD is available.
