Hypnagogia: The Borderland State (2011)

A dance film about that transitional state between wakefulness and sleep known as hypnagogia. A choreographer struggling with his latest creation discovers the key to his work in a dream.

‘Point Taken’ was a particularly good experience for me because the dialogue between the various artistic disciplines had an inspirational effect. From me it was a real 1+1=3 experience. We need a lot more of this kind of renaissance experience in these times.”
