Blu in You is a hybrid documentary which explores a cultural history of violence perpetrated onto the black body mediated through the perspective a black queer Caribbean/Canadian Woman and filtered through the art-installation conversations between writer Nalo Hopkinson and visual arts curator Andrea Fatona, whom the Woman observes. This rumination on the intersection of violence and the erotic body complexly engage with questions of how to represent blackness and a black erotic subject in tangent with the process of artistic construction of the image.
