The film »It's a Blue World« is the result of more than two years of work. It is not a portrait of the Danish painter Hans Henrik Lerfeldt, but a film about his artistic universe. Hans Henrik Lerfeldt who died in July 1989 when the production of IT'S A BLUE WORLD was almost completed, reached international fame by the late seventies. At this point of his life he had refined his style to an almost photographic accuracy combined with a choice of motifs that were often of a pornographic nature. This made his art - as well as his person - rather controversial. Director Torben Skjødt Jensen worked intimately with Hans Henrik Lerfeldt to make the film and in accordance with Lerfeldt's wishes. The controversial nature of his work has not been toned down or made respectable.
Their collaboration resulted in hours of recorded conversations and glimpses of Lerfeldt's daily life, some of which have been integrated into the film. Others have been the basis for fictional sequences. Together with adaptations of Lerfeldt's paintings they form a picture of Hans Henrik Lerfeldt's blue world.
