Blue Alchemy: Stories of Indigo

New Mexico filmmaker Mary Lance (Agnes Martin: With My Back to the World) travels the globe (India, Japan, Bangladesh, Mexico, Nigeria) to trace the history of the organic dye known as indigo. It's the mysterious color that gives blue jeans their hue, made blue collar workers blue, helped build the Silk Road and first fueled the American slave trade. In an era of synthetic everything, it's also making a major comeback among back-to-basics artists and textile-makers. Lance's gorgeous documentary functions as both history lesson and art lesson, showing us all sides of this colorful commodity. 79 minutes (Opens Saturday 1/7)
