The following short films, each less than one minute in length, were created for the compilation project, OneDreamRush.
First, we have Asia Argento on the fluidity of SEXUAL IDENTITY.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgIgiQ-2TNo]
Next is Kenneth Anger looking – not for the first time – at DEATH.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4VJs_uWxWo]
And finally, David Lynch looks – not for the first time – at DREAMING.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2uDsVi2EU_E]
I hadn’t heard of the OneDreamRush project until I discovered these and other short films in the series on YouTube today. Apparently, China’s largest film producer, the Beijing Film Studio, instigated this project in 2009 in partnership with a New Zealand vodka maker, 42BELOW. They invited 42 international filmmakers working independently and with no other restrictions to each make a film roughly 42 seconds in length responding to the question, “How do we dream?” Additional contributions to the project can be seen on YouTube or at the 42BELOW website.
