Hadaya Turner shows, how films can distract us with their color. Certain genres also share color settings and individual scenes and moments can have different effects depending on the staging farblicher. Kalt vs. Warm, Dynamisch vs. Starr and Old vs. new. That is now not a new insight, that blue-and-orange is very horny, but overall the issue has been treated very complacently.

Like music in an elevator or a doctor’s waiting room, color has the power to influence how we feel without our even noticing. Film directors have exploited our connection to color for decades.
