Charming Mercadantes short shows the simple beauty of colour

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best ones, something which directorial duo (and married couple) The Mercadantes grasp perfectly. They describe themselves as making films that “celebrate life,” and their new film, Color, is no exception. The sweet little short takes us on a journey through the rainbow guided by a series of pieces of film and photography of objects linked by nothing but their hue, from an egg, to Yoda, to a toilet’s engaged sign and a big yellow taxi. The editing is sublime and a Mozart soundtrack is a great fit, all coming together to drive home the idea that beauty and colour can be found in even the most seemingly banal objects.
