1. Review by Eric Stashak

    Director Tatyana Zvanskaya’s film “Dreams of Nature” is a crisp and beautifully rendered version of Plato’s famous Allegory of the Cave, set to the music of the Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Ros, purveyors of the finest spacey-dream-music imaginable. In Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, a man spends his whole life chained to a rock in a cave, and seeing shadows of real things projected onto the wall, mistakes those shadows for real things, until he steps outside and sees the true nature of things in the sun of wisdom. A familiarity of the Allegory is crucial for understanding the video: the dazzlingly gorgeous Albino actress Anastasia Zhidkova spends the build-up to the song among pinecones, scattered books, and bits of trees, and only when the song is reaching its climax does she run outside to the world of real objects. This world is bright and hazy, due in part to the overwhelming nature of things seen in sun after only seeing them indoors. Zvanskaya’s film takes a moving idea and makes it gorgeous in solid blues and icy greys.
