Colour in the West was always associated with ‘the Other’, with the body of the exotic, the woman, or the child…Colour in film was a spectacle in itself and was used to capture the attention of the viewers. With commodities it worked in a similar way: Colour was an added value and a convincing selling argument. There is an equation between these exotic bodies and desirable goods. --- Alexandra Navratil*
