This chapter presents some text with remarks on colour that address a hesitation in Film Studies to engage with this stylistic element. Steve Neale's Cinema and Technology: Image, Sound, Colour remains a keystone work, considering colour's development alongside other technological advancements of film. Though central to the plastics of cinema, colour often goes unacknowledged. This introduction presents the key concepts discusses in the subsequent chapters of this book. To give space to the intricacies and complexities of colour on display in exemplary works, the book focuses on six films. The films are Three Colours: White; Equinox Flower; The Green Ray; Written on the Wind; Fear Eats the Soul; and The Umbrellas of Cherbourg. As well as focusing on colour, the book offers an alternative to national, socio-political, and historically chronological approaches to film style.
