"All that we see or seem but a dream within a dream" -Edgar Allan Poe An artist Joseph Cornell immerses himself in the music of Debussy as he makes his art, watching his creation slowly come alive. At the same time, a dream is visiting Cornell, influencing his thoughts and decisions, and guiding him on how to complete his artwork. The experience leaves the viewer uncertain and unnerved about where the real world begins and ends. It's almost as if there is a parallel universe mirroring our life on Earth "or perhaps it is the other way around"and it is the dream that spans over like a bridge connecting those universes.
Aleksandar Kostic is a film director, writer, cinematographer and producer. He is originally from Serbia and currently based in New York City. His films draw upon his strong cinematic vision, distinctive camerawork and close collaboration with the performers, enabling him to boldly cross conventions and boundaries that normally separate such genres as experimental film, video installation art, live performance, documentary and narrative film.
As a storyteller, much of his creative work has revolved around the exploration of sense, memory and our movement through life, and understanding how we touch - and are touched by - the larger world we pass through. These themes pervade his experimental short films, "Walk of Life", "Room", "A Tomb For Boris Davidovich ", "Journey" and "Parallel Dreams". More recently, he has begun to examine the impact of the unprecedented infiltration of technology into our daily lives, and the extent to which it may be undermining our capacity to perceive and interact with the world and people around us. This idea of technologically-induced isolation and its consequences is the subject of latest narrative project, a feature film entitled "Capio". Currently in pre-production, "Capio" is both a science-fiction thriller and a social commentary, about a mysterious entity who uses the hunger for technologically-enabled escape to enslave a city that is more than willing to submit.
