‘Parallel Dreams’ Short Film is in the post-production directed by Aleksandar Kostic.
An artist Joseph Cornell immerses himself in the music of Debussy as he makes his art, watching his creation slowly come alive. At the same time, a dream is visiting Cornell, influencing his thoughts and decisions, and guiding him on how to complete his artwork. The experience leaves the viewer uncertain and unnerved regarding where the real world begins and ends. It’s almost as if there is a parallel universe mirroring our life on Earth—or perhaps it is the other way around—and it is the dream that expands like a bridge to connect those universes.
Initial story for this move comes from my own experience that sometimes when I wake up I don’t know if I am awake or I am still dreaming. My dreams appear so realistic that they leave me uncertain of where I exited them to enter the real world. It’s almost as if there is a parallel universe mirroring this life on Earth, or perhaps even the other way around and a dream is the bridge that connect them.
