Description

Six Dreams About a City is an experimental short film that exploring the middle ground between dreams and reality, as well as history and present. Employing animation and historical footage, the film depicts several short phantasmagoric dreams of an unknown city, which seem to occur in the mind of an imprisoned white American. The film is a response to the Hyper-reality of today’s China. But there is no answer or solution has been revealed in the film, as there is no answer and solution for this pathetic world, either.
