Dream of Water
Hans (Esse Li) Esselius

The magic and clarity of water makes it a classic topic in free film, used by many film-makers in different ways. Esselius again manages to imbue this theme with energy and vitality.

A poetic study of thirst. Stylized images of flowing water and the face of a young woman flowing past as in a metaphysical dream.
