Yellow, red, blue, green… Colours are often what strike us when we discover a country. Why are yellow and gold used so much in the decoration of this temple? How is the blue pigment that colours this piece of clothing produced? Our eye is first drawn by vivid or unusual hues – those of a river or a rare flower, traditional costumes or a commonplace accessory.
How about exploring a country through this prism? That is what this documentary series sets out to achieve, tackling each trip from this original angle. Each episode will take us to discover the country along a trail that encompasses the landscapes, monuments, and cultural aspects such as costumes, decoration, objects, and building materials in that colour.
A colourful voyage that will plunge us into breathtaking landscapes, going inside some sumptuous monuments, and getting up close during local rituals and practices. Experts, historians, or local witnesses will contribute to provide explanations about particular uses or unusual natural colors.
