Blue is the Warmest Color investigates the representation of queer sexuality through the passionate yet volatile relationship between the main characters Clementine and Emma. While it is obvious that they love each other, in contrast to an 'out' Emma, Clementine still remains in an uncomfortable semi-closeted situation due to her struggles to comprehend her sexuality which is not helped by the people around her who wish to see her adhere to one label. As such, this project seeks to explore the identity politics that come with the acceptance (and denial) of female sexual subjectivity, and how the binaries that manifest from it might result in the restriction of sexual fluidity.
