In collective:unconscious, filmmakers Lily Baldwin and Josephine Decker use dance in strikingly different ways. From Baldwin’s eerie physical breakdowns to Decker’s cat-and-mouse like structure, each create cinematic dreamscapes that rely on choreographed movement. For those of you that dance in your dreams, join us for a special screening and panel dedicated to the use of dance as a storytelling device in film. Still from dance filmmaker Lily Baldwin.

About collective:unconscious
“Like nothing you’ve ever seen with your eyes open.” – Rolling Stone “The most complex and cohesive anthology film since ‘Fantasia 2000.’ – The Austin Chronicle “collective:unconscious is able to capture the unique voices of each director while creating an interesting whole that feels like a dream both as you’re watching and long after.” – Paste A man and his grandmother hide out from an ominous broadcast. The Grim Reaper hosts a TV show. The formerly incarcerated recount and reinterpret their first days of freedom. A suburban mom’s life is upturned by the beast growing inside of her. And a high school gym teacher runs drills from inside a volcano. What happens when five of independent film’s most adventurous filmmakers join together to literally adapt each other’s dreams for the screen? Featuring new works by Lily Baldwin, Frances Bodomo, Daniel Patrick Carbone, Josephine Decker, and Lauren Wolkstein, Collective: Unconscious will transport you to a place in-between sleep and consciousness. Welcome to our dream state. Watch the collective:unconscious trailer
