A blue filter obstructs our view, hiding the prospect of something. It could be trees. We see a blue screen, but we could be anywhere. Three women stand in an empty swimming pool. Their minimalist movements shift back and forth between meditation and resistance. The enemy is invisible, perpetually taking on new forms. Who is a friend? Who is a foe?
