Playing in this year's Forum section at Berlinale are a few American indy films, one of them being Matthew Hysell's Marin Blue which as I pointed out in the article title looks nothing short of stunning, in fact I'm salivating over the footage right now. According to the Berline press release: "Director Matthew Hysell surrounds his characters with a puzzling silence that alludes to a traumatic past. In the perplexing void of Los Angeles’s suburban architecture, the ruins of real estate speculation, they seek out temporary housing, and wait for their memories to return." You get a feel for those beautiful landscape and architectural shots in the trailer, and really, this is something you don't want to miss.

Marin and Jim are two outsiders, drawn together by a shared history unknown even to them. Marin spends her days at a youth mental facility singing over a loudspeaker to patients. Jim, recently committed, only knows her through her voice. When circumstances force him to escape Jim finds himself in a vacant Los Angeles landscape. There he meets Marin face to face. As Marin becomes part of Jim's life she unknowingly brings back his lost past. It is a story of new beginnings ant the sometimes harsh, sometimes surreal dream that is reality.
