A black-and-white film about the color red. What sounds like a pointless endeavor is perhaps the smartest solution. The Color Red is about learning to see red with different eyes. The film accompanies – representative of 8 billion pairs of eyes – an optical physicist and a painter in their preoccupation with the color red. The question of how different red can be is ultimately joined by curiosity: do we “see” the color without the film having to show it?
