Blue Diary


Rental Format(s): 16mm film

Through voiceover and static San Francisco landscapes, this classic 1997 short tells the melancholy story of a butch dyke pining over a one night stand with a straight girl. As the initial foray into 16mm urban landscape filmmaking by writer-director Jenni Olson, Blue Diary establishes many of the themes that Olson would go on to explore further in her subsequent 16mm features, The Joy of Life (2005) and The Royal Road (2015).
