Lucid Space explores the power of dreams to free us from the confines imposed on us by society. The film follows a woman as she encounters misogyny and mundanity in her day-to-day life. In the mirror she sees only distortions of her true self - reflected back at her are all the labels that have been thrust upon her by others. One day, she visits a strange place in her dreams and begins to regain control of her life.
Lucid Space will be available for streaming very soon, stay tuned!

Films that will be presented at Nightfall - Spring 2022:
We are excited to share The Things We Say, a short dance film created by MillO Dance Projects. The Things We Say explores the potency of words and the importance of understanding the consequences of the language we choose. Throughout the film, you will hear the real voices of those who have responded to the question: “What is the worst thing someone has ever said to you?”. The choreography combines highly physical movement involving partnering and the movement that embodies vulnerability and sentimentality. If we understood the severe pain words can inflict on others, would we choose them more carefully?
Special Thank You to:
