Film notes

Black + White Films embarked on this project wanting to give audiences a different experience. Inspired by my overseas experiences, El Gris Perfecto explores youth issues and alternative cultures through the eyes of a Singaporean-Spanish boy who decides to embark on a journey triggered by unforeseen circumstances. It focuses on how youths today assimilate themselves into society, their process of self-discovery, and their journey of finding out what is right for them. Furthermore, the team wanted to focus on life’s grey areas, where people are in situations of ambiguity and unsure about which step to take. The concept of grey is the overarching theme of the film, and the message that we want audiences to take away after watching the film, which takes them beyond the stereotypical thinking of how everything should be in clear black and white terms.

El Gris Perfecto hopes to present a moving and visual poetry about self-discovery and life as experienced by youths today. The film is shot entirely on location in Barcelona, Spain.
