Dream

Anver Shahaf’s work, Dream, is based on a technique devised by the Surrealist Movement-the “exquisite corpse.” In this method, a group of people draws together an image of a person. Each member discreetly draws, in turn, a different part of the human body and then folds the paper over leaving only the edge of his or her drawing showing before passing it on to the next person. Passing from hand to hand, the peice of paper is folded over and over again and is gradually filled up. Finally, when the folded sheet is opened and straightened, the deformed and artificial figure is revealed -the “exquistite corpse.” The surrealists utilized this principle of chance to compose images devoid of any casual logic.

Director: Avner Shahaf

Producer: Chen Scheinberg, Ben Hagari

Production Company: The New Fund for Cinema and TV, Noga Communivation - Logi Channel

Film Name in Hebrew: חלום
