great raw emotion, nothing like the real thing bad or good feelings draw you in. It's weird almost like you are sending emotion through this internet machine. Beautiful, truly beautiful!!

It really is amazing when you have dreams like this that dont seem like "dreams" at all. Where you here at some point in some place "real"? Or not.
Those are crazy amazing dreams you had. Particularly seeing that man on the bus years later.

Maigin you are a star in this world.
powerful stuff.
I have had a recurring dream for years where I am hooked up to a life support system and the life I am living now is in fact a dream.
When I was a kid I dreamed about walking up the stairs in an old house and opening the door to a room where there was a woman standing in the centre of the room screaming whith her eyes bulging out and her hair white and wild; everything in the room is flying around. I quickly shut the door and fly down the stairs in a panic.
When I got to teenage years I hadn't had the dream for some years and one night it happened again but this time I walked calmly into the room and just stood there and everything seemed to evaporate.
Another thing when I was a kid......this man's face used to appear to me every so often in the middle of my dreams. It would terrify me and I would wake up screaming.
Years later I was siiting on a bus in London when this man in front of me turned right around and stared at me, it was the same man. I jumped up and got off the bus as fast as I could.

You make really good choices on your soundtracks. It's interesting to see so much goodness crammed into what...one minute or something? or less...probably...but anyway...it was awesome. ...but I don't ever want to get that close to your eye again...way too creepy, lol j/k.

I've never had a realistic war dream that freaked me out...I've actually not had many dreams that left a serious impression on me after I woke up...only like...4 or so that come to mind. The last one was that I was eating at a Mexican restaurant that had a patio kind of thing...and I was sitting out there under the little umbrealla thing and my family was there too. My younger sis was at the table with me and my mother was at another table...and then this guy comes up and reaches into his pocket...pulls out a gun and shoots me in the head.

I don't die...but I'm seriously handicaped after that. I woke up after my fam came to visit me in the hospital with me in bandages.

I stayed away from Taco Bell for a long time after that. And actually I'm still a bit freaked about going to a mexican restuarant, particularly ones with outside eating areas...luckily, there are none of those in my town, heh. : \

I'm so sorry you had to go through all of that. I cant even imagine how hard that would be.
Yah, that dream really made some kind of difference to me. Some dreams come around where you actually feel as though you've experienced something real, or at least the dream makes you think about something that might effect you. Although I guess that's why I remember more nightmares I've ever had then good dreams. Infact I can remember nightmares I've had when I was 8, and all the worst nightmares I've had since, but I cant remember a single good dream my whole lifetime.
There's really something extraordinary about dreaming. The fact that everyone has so many dreams, but you only remember a certain amount, or it comes in waves of memory. I could go on forever about stuff I dont have enough knowledge about. It just reminds me that the mind is such an amazing machine, and EVERYONE at every second has amazing revelations whether they are asleep or awake.

i used to have war dreams all the time, almost every night since 2001, the year (roughly) in which both my dad died of cancer (dec 2000) and the united states was attacked by terrorists (sept 2001). my terrifying dreams usually featured some combination of the two terrors i'd witnessed that year: the slow death of my dad and the instant (suprise) death of thousands of new yorkers. i stopped having the war dreams when i stopped obsessively watching/reading the news, which coincided with when i moved to california (oct 2003) and when my antidepressants started working. i saw farenheit 9/11 yesterday, and it was a sobering reminder of the fact that though i am incredibly stable these days, our world is still a very unstable and scary place to be. your movie is a nice memento to the gravity of war, even war that's far away.

The music is from Robert Scott's (of the Clean) solo album.

Yah this was a weird war dream. America was being invaded and there were all these people in the streets trying to hide and run for shelter, and then somehow I ended up in a hotel room crammed underneath a bed with 4 other people, and we waited for awhile and then i needed air so I got out from under the bed and there was a soldier outside the window who saw me and pointed his gun at me and then I woke up.
The strange part was for most of my dream I was under that bed trying to be as quiet as I could and it felt like an hour elapsed (in real time).

this is art. this is dawning of a neu renaissance of overground filmmaking. this gives any of the early masters a run for their money. truly beautiful. the look and feel brings me back to 1997 when i first started to get into experiemental film. thank you maigin. was is the soundtrack?

i really like this movie. the audio and visual elements go together really well. war dreams are the worst. i used to have a lot more of them. now when i have them they are absurd, like Battle Royale.
