BLUE

Directed by
Samantha Severin

A cam-girl's curious of who and what is behind the digital spotlight.

New York-based filmmaker Samantha Severin describes her directorial psychological debut as a “surreal fever dream". Blue explores the male gaze when a cam-girl soon wonders what it's like to be the watcher of her, and whether someone is watching offline. The film's underlying themes probe modern day anxieties of constant surveillance by a mystery eye.

Severin <<Men consume her in both private and public spaces. When she is safe behind a camera she has the control and enjoys being on display. Outside of that, the attention can be terrifying.

Women have a unique hyperawareness of their physical selves as objects. We’re constantly on display—sometimes we feel like prey. >>
