An explosion of color that celebrates the human creative spirit
25 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film, which was years in the making and spans four continents in its depth and breadth, works on multiple levels: it is all at once a study in anthropology, spirituality, geopolitics, economics, history and art. The fact that this blue dye has inspired so many people of independent nations for so many centuries is a testament to the durability of the human spirit and the universal love for blue which colors the sky above and the sea below. Mary Lance, the distinguished and award winning director of films on the WPA arts project, Diego Rivera and other great artists -- achieves her finest work to date in BLUE ALCHEMY: Stories of Indigo. This is a must-see for every person who has ever found value in the meaning of art -- who has ever worn a pair of jeans -- who has ever wondered where the color blue comes from. Ten stars.
