Journeying into the mythical space of southern Mexico, visual artists Geska and Robert Brečević and their five-year old daughter Katja unearth complex stories in which time, memory and nostalgia are continually reenacted. Dreaming The Memories of Now leads us through a stunning and profound exploration of the artistic process of creation and an ethereal declaration of love for a place. Stretching the genre of documentary, this experimental essay-film is a composition of far-ranging thoughts, sun-drenched images and scenes of mystery, guided by the poetic voice of the narrator and a gripping, visceral soundscape.
GESKA HELENA BREČEVIĆ and ROBERT BREČEVIĆ form the internationally acclaimed artist duo Performing Pictures. Their expanding body of video animations, ciné-apparitions and casual snapshots blurs lines between media forms, between still and moving images, and be- tween ephemerality and permanence. The images are made tangible, often installed as objects outside the fine art circuit. DREAMING THE MEMORIES OF NOW is their first full-length film.
