An artist Joseph Cornell immerses himself in the music of Debussy as he makes his art, watching his creation slowly come alive. At the same time, a dream is visiting Cornell, influencing his thoughts and decisions, and guiding him on how to complete his artwork. The experience leaves the viewer uncertain and unnerved regarding where the real world begins and ends. It's almost as if there is a parallel universe mirroring our life on Earth-or perhaps it is the other way around-and it is the dream that expands like a bridge to connect those universes. This film "Parallel Dreams" was made in between the original "Parallel Dreams" performances, and made possible in part with public funds from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and donations from Materials for the Arts.
