Projectinfo

Close the Eyes, feature-length film, (work-in-progress)
An investigation into the impact of dreaming on the individual and collective psyches. Beginning in the city of Vienna, which is posited to be a gateway to the “underworld”, the film builds a psychological topography from experiences, encounters, reflections and observations with residents of the city. The film opens within the space of a dream located in Dr. Sigmund Freud’s office at the turn of the twentieth century. We are introduced to an eclectic cross-section of the Viennese public who discuss their perspectives on dreams, the unconscious, and the resulting effect on waking life. Each encounter reveals a new pathway on the filmmakers’ evolving map. Conversations are interwoven with original and archival imagery and text inspired by the long history of dream representations in fine art, film, music, and photography.
