Colour Dramaturgy

Colour dramaturgy in film refers to the choice and arrangement of colours in the photographic composition of a shot. Colour dramaturgy is implemented through set design and costume, as well as through conscious choices in lighting, which may for example result in a „cold“ or „warm“ tone, according to the director’s and/or cinematographer’s vision.  The colour dramaturgy of a film may work, in form of repetitive visual elements, in support of a certain leitmotif (i.e. the girl in the red dress in Schindler’s List), or as a reference to influential sources from fine art (- in the way Jean-Luc Godard’s repeated use of bold prime colours in Pierrot Le Fou stands out as a tribute to the Pop Art movement.)
