Azul no Azul is the result of the encounter between painter Nelson Ferreira and filmmaker Gianmarco Donaggio. The film represents a landmark in experimental cinema for what concerns cinematography innovation and crossover between painting and cinema.
As stated by the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Portugal: "Blue is the liminal space where the motion traverses the static, painting meets cinema, and dynamic tension liberates dreams. Blue, in the film, is not a statement nor a colour, but rather the emergence of a feeling. An empty canvas for the viewer to engage within the contraction and expansion of the light flux."
