Call for Dreams + Q&A with director Ran Slavin
Dir. Ran Slavin | Japan/Israel 2018 | 80 mins
Experimental Israeli filmmaker, musician and artist Ran Slavin follows in the footsteps of Alfred Hitchcock and David Lynch in this visually striking meditation on the nature of dreams and the elusive boundary between them and our waking lives. In neon-lit Tokyo, Eko offers her services as a dream decipherer. But the once clear line between illusion and reality starts to blur when She finds herself implicated in a murder investigation in Tel Aviv.
