THE DARK SIDE OF DREAMS
In the late 1960’s, photographer Arthur Tress began a series of photographs that were inspired by the dreams of children. Tress had each child he approached tell him about a prominent dream of theirs which Tress would then artistically re-create and photograph with the child as the main subject.
Bunny Lake is Missing (1965/dir. Otto Preminger)
“Incendies” is a horror movie, a love story and a mystery, each thread of which is so expertly interwoven into the larger narrative that it is impossible to separate any one strand from the other. In the end, the effect of the sinuous, snaking drama — which elegantly traces a timeline stretching from contemporary Quebec to war-torn Lebanon of the 1970s and back — is like a tripwire. It knocks you off your feet and leaves you shaken.
