This short film is sure to provoke a few head scratches. Why is it called The Blu Line when the line is white? Why is a young girl painting on a perfectly good hardwood floor? Why are we staring at a chair for two minutes?
The simple imperative of this film urges the viewer to cross the line from business as usual to a new approach. The young girl symbolizes fresh thought and the need to increasingly use feminine and freedom-centered qualities in leadership in order to bring greater balance and progress to the world. The empty chair begs the question, "Who will have the courage to embrace this new style of leadership?" And the kinetic textures in the blue wall behind it suggest the energy and palate of freedom.
In essence, "The Blu Line" is an allegory for the demands of freedom-centered leadership in all arenas of life - business, political, cultural. It is this consideration which WorldBlu requests of the world daily. And in turn, this request mandates the progress of humankind.
