Shorts: Waking Dream

Part of the Shorts Strand

  • 15


Delving into the dark corners of consciousness, this programme drifts through a nocturnal road-trip into the deep wasteland of the American dream; observes a potent process of ritual and transfiguration in a rural Colombian community; forensically unravels the ancient layers bound into a volcanic landscape; witnesses journeys made only in the imagination; and charts dream-images that hover between the liminal and the ephemeral.

Contains flashing images.
