The title derives from a quote featured in the film The Green Ray, directed by Eric Rohmer. Only recently, have I become fascinated by the marvelous character Delphine, who after a recent break up with her boyfriend, embarks on searching for some sort of true human connection……she ultimately becomes a portrait of loneliness. It depresses her, seeing others happy in love, happily coupled.  Delphine hopes to forget the recent break up with her partner, through a vacation, a post card perfect one. It is through the power of the green light, a phenomenon only visible at sunset, a signifier or miracle for Delphine, that all will be well, even if she doesn’t have someone to share it with. Could the green be a colour of hope? “You keep on Dreaming, and Waiting” becomes about the act of looking itself, about faith and belief in what you see.
