Shadows

Australia, 1982 (MIFF 1982)

Director: Royden Irvine

This film is a personal journey, a form of diary that ventures into the territory of the unconscious. It is based upon the exploration of the body's movements while asleep. This reality is then altered through the form of film to explore the world of mythological symbolism which is expressed in our unconscious. It was shot during real sleep.
