‘Call For Dreams’ official film trailer from Ran Slavin on Vimeo.

Out now. 

A young Japanese lady faints in a Pachinko parlor in Tokyo only to hesitantly reinvent herself as a dream interpreter, until it starts getting harder to distinguish what was normal from what was not. With her scooter she visits strangers in the alienating city, who leave descriptions of their strange dreams on her analog answering machine and for a fee carries a form of ritual-performance for them as a “therapy” service. As the dreams trickle into reality, and a related parallel police investigation of a murder in Tel Aviv unfolds, what was real and what was not dims to be a faded threshold, in a poetic noir art thriller.

Very happy to be showing the video work “Newtopia” during the festive periods of Christmas and the Chinese New Year in Hong Kong’s largest, and one of the worlds largest screens!
“Newtopia” will be screened on the Tsim Sha Tsui Centre and the Empire Centre screens during December and January as one of the winners at the The Sino x Niio Illumination Art Prizes

“Newtopia” The Sino x Niio Illumination Art Prizes, Hong Kong from Ran Slavin on Vimeo.

Description: The city sparkles in a mysterious mesmerizing futurist promise, between the present, past and future, science fiction and zen, suspended in this moment in time. The city as body, its molecular veins – light conveying information, forever on the move in a changing and morphing cycle.

7.12.18 Call For Dreams wins Best Film at Utopia Film Festival

 

 

 

We won the Israeli competition last night at Utopia Film Festival with Call For Dreams! Thank you Utopiafest and thank you Jury Members Lior Elefant, Israel, Co-director, Israeli Women in Film and Television Forum Angel Sala Corbi, Spain, Director of the SITGES Festival Internacional de Cinema Fantàstic de Catalunya Pedro Souto, Portugal, Director of the Lisbon International Horror Film Festival, MOTELX

Took us by surprise.

Quote:
The jury of the Utopia Israel competition want to congratulate the organization of the Festival for a great selection, a perfect balance between pure genre movies and others more focused in the progressive genre hybridization and the break of frontiers of different cinema manifestations.
The winner for this jury is Call For Dreams directed by Ran Slavin (produced by Ronen Ben-Tal). A film that develops a rich structure of themes, a complex narrative between science fiction and video art and also a reflection about the nature of reality.
