A woman goes to bed, falls asleep, and begins to dream. This dream takes her to a landscape of light and shadow, evoked in a form only possible through classic cinematography. An homage to Man Ray, dedicated to the beginning of the European avant-garde film within the surrealist movement.

Our take

A major figure in contemporary found-footage filmmaking, Tscherkassky is devoted to the sensory and tactile potential of celluloid, and committed to unveiling its artifice. Manually reworking films, frame by frame, he manipulates pre-existing images to capture the vivid fever dreams of surrealism.
