THE MAN WHO LIVED IN DREAMS

Written by I. Michael Toth

Produced by Christopher Gentry

 

Genre: Drama

 

Synopsis: After discovering the "Big Lie" of his life, a man struggles to cope with the loss of his father, his girlfriend and a hand written manuscript that holds the key to his life's mystery. He creates his own illusinary world so perfectly strong and convincing that others believe it too. This man's journey to redefine his life reflects our maddening needs as human beings to construct our own illusions to find more confortable realities.

 

Set against a backdrop of the surrealist paintings of Rene Magritte and the hypnotic music of Patricia Barber, the story unfolds through a complex pattern of non-linear narrative structure to create a layered,temporal composition. By going back and forth in time, the elements of the narrative are gradually revealed and retroactively understood. The story weaves in and out between characters , places and events, building up its thematic unity to provoke the audience to question the supposedly fixed nature of reality, the foundations of relationships, morality, creativity and art.
