Sci-Fi Drama ‘This Blue Is Mine’ to Feature Zazie Beetz and Elizabeth Debicki in Lead Roles


A fresh narrative is set to unfold on the silver screen, merging intricate human emotions with the enigma of science fiction. ‘This Blue Is Mine,’ the latest film offering soon to commence production, has announced a stellar lead cast featuring Zazie Beetz and Elizabeth Debicki. This movie is anticipated to veer into the realm of psychosexual science fiction and holds the distinction of being the English-language directorial debut for Iuli Gerbase, who has already made waves in the international film circuit.

Amidst the serene backdrop of Colombia, the production of ‘This Blue Is Mine’ is slated for the burgeoning months of August and September. The plot is laced with familial undertones, set against the leisurely pace of a vacation at a tropical resort that slowly spirals into a tapestry of suspense and speculation. Within this idyllic setting, the family equilibrium is disturbed when Arthur introduces Ivy, his enigmatic new girlfriend played by the talented Elizabeth Debicki. The presence of Ivy, whose character bears the mystique of an extraterrestrial, results in a chilling revelation to a drunken Connie, Arthur’s daughter portrayed by Zazie Beetz. Ivy’s confession that she is, in fact, an alien visiting Earth, imbues the narrative with a chilling layer of intrigue, setting the stage for a gripping psychological drama that explores the boundaries between the familiar and the extraordinary.

The cinematic venture of Gerbase comes on the heels of her critically acclaimed first feature film, ‘The Pink Cloud,’ which premiered at the famed Sundance Film Festival in 2021. The director’s craft did not go unnoticed, as her film went on to clinch prestigious awards at several international film festivals. Among its accolades were the Bloody Window Award at the Sitges Film Festival and the esteemed Grand Prix at the Sofia International Film Festival—testaments to Gerbase’s storytelling prowess and artistic vision.

With the buzz growing around ‘This Blue Is Mine,’ the film has already garnered considerable attention in the market. HanWay Films has initiated international sales ahead of the esteemed Cannes Film Market, with the heavy task of U.S. distribution falling under the ambit of UTA Independent Film Group. Adding to the production’s clout, the project is being produced by Marissa McMahon and Ashley Schlaifer under the banner of Kamala Films. In a show of confidence in the project and her role, Zazie Beetz not only graces the screen but also steps behind the camera as an executive producer.

As the film industry anticipates the reveal of this promising title, ‘This Blue Is Mine’ stands as an emblem of the dynamic evolution of genre cinema, intertwining the depth of drama with the speculative allure of science fiction. Audiences around the world can look forward to a movie that promises to deliver an innovative angle on extraterrestrial encounters steeped in the complex web of human relationships and emotions. With a cast led by Beetz and Debicki, ‘This Blue Is Mine’ is shaping up to be a cinematic experience that is as thought-provoking as it is novel, opening a window into the versatility of English cinema and the expanding frontiers of world cinema.
