The film PINK explores the relationship between gender and colours, capturing the pressure and anxiety this young girl associates with the colour pink. In her dream/nightmare, she is being chased by a bunch of pink balloons. But when she sees a group of friends wearing a range of different colours, her mind is put at ease, as she is reminded that colours are nothing more than colours.
