  • A sleeping five-year old girl recounts dreams recorded over a three month period in a voice-over soundtrack. She experiences a lucid dream which is characterized by the dreamer knowing that he or she is dreaming while experiencing the dream. In DREAM TIME the video becomes the intermediary between the spiritual and material worlds, as the lively narrative of the dreams as described by the girl contrasts with quiet images of her sleeping, and suggests these dualities of consciousness and sleep.
