Synopsis:

In rainy Tokyo, Eko complicates her life by publishing a ‘Call for Dreams’ ad in a Tokyo newspaper. With her scooter she visits strangers in the big and alienating city, who leave descriptions of their strange dreams and fantasies on her analog answering machine and for a fee acts them out. As the dreams slowly seep into reality and a parallel police investigation of a murder in Tel Aviv unfolds, what is real and what is not is getting harder to distinguish.

Disorientation group show at The New Gallery Artists Studios, Jerusalem

Opening 15.11.19 at 11:00

The term orientation, finding one’s position, originates in the Latin orientis or oriens, meaning “to shine” or “East,” to which ancient maps pointed. The act of adjusting the map to the correct picture of the world, turning it around to face east, was called orientation. When the compass was invented, magnetic north took its place as the main cardinal direction for Eurocentric mapmakers. Disorientation is a state of lack of spatial awareness in which one loses direction, whether it be geographic, concrete, or, metaphorical.
The exhibition is on view in the New Gallery, Teddy Stadium, a complex that stands aloof in terms of the city’s spread, severed from the fabric of the urban street life, neighborhood, and community. The works by the six participating artists engage in definitions of place and its relationship with its visual markers. They mark out a place while simultaneously subverting the possibility of orientation within it.

Recent interviews

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.
