ELECTRIC INDIGO

Directed by Jean-Julien Collette

Jean-Julien Collette (Brussels - 1978) is an autodidact Belgian filmmaker. Bitten by the cinema bug at the age of eight, he promised his father that one day he would become a film director. Many years later, he is fulfilling his dream with five short films to his credit totaling up to 400 selections and 90 awards in film festivals (such as Karlovy Vary, Montreal World, Palm Springs Shorts, Clermont Ferrand...). Electric Indigo is his first solo work and marks a change of direction towards a hand-held camera style and a colorful aesthetic. In this film, he explores his favorite themes in more depth; the sexuality and the unstructured family in a modern and pluralistic society. He is currently preparing his first long feature, Rabbits, a supernatural thriller.
