Dreamscapes: Chapter I

Dreamscapes is a short film exploring the importance of dreams, for me as a Polish woman. It draws inspiration from old Slavic tales, myths and believes. It starts with shamanic visions of being liberated and cutting cords of the past. Letting go the old, and embracing the full femininity of the artist. Everything is very ephemeral with painterly feel.

I started to explore the importance of dreams, for me as a Polish woman. It draws inspiration from old Slavic tales, myths and believes. It starts with shamanic visions of being liberated and cutting cords of the past. Letting go the old, and embracing the full femininity of the artist.

I intentionally included the nudity in the films. It is an important part of my art, and my mind since the early beginnings. Nudity was part of art history since early time, and we became slightly afraid of using it. Yet it is such an important part of embracing who we are as humans. In this piece I wanted to show a female (a slight personification of an artist) getting free of her all the bounds and history that stops her from moving, like a moth or a butterfly she is getting free from a cocoon. 

The red in this case represents two things. One is protection and safety. Red string was used in Slavic cultures as a protection charm. But laso for me, getting inspired by Wes Anderson, red represents the grief that I have been learning to experience since late 2021. 

Everything is very ephemeral with painterly feel. 

One thing that I would change looking at it now is how dark some scenes are, I feel it is bit to dark at some points.
