I am one of the top ten list of beautiful films at SUndance on
1. THIS WORLD MADE ITSELF: MYTH AND INFRASTRUCTURE OF LUCID DREAMING
Part film, part live performance art, this trilogy, by animator/performance artist Miwa Matreyek, is a breathtakingly beautiful exploration of inner and outer worlds. We see Matreyek’s body move, in live silhouette as she interacts with her own exquisitely rendered animations.
Matreyek plays with the concept of lucid dreaming as the viewer is taken on a fantasy trip through time and space, as she goes diving deep into the sea, soaring up into the stars, floating upon flowered fields, swirling in an electric soup, and simply interacting with her cat as she rustles up some dinner in her humble kitchen.
The artist creates and is created by the world. With delicate poetry and powerful visions, this work is one we will never forget.
