"Heather’s Dream" has been accepted in the competition at the Short Film Festival in Oberhausen in May 2013!
Heather (Heather Megan Christie) lies on her bed and narrates off screen: “One morning I didn´t wake up. I had a fever”. And then finds herself in a dazzling desert landscape. Here a magic doctor (Udo Kier) pursues his work in his office. Something is going on. Everything seems to be prepared. The atmosphere in his office, open to all directions is hypnotic. The patient is waiting for her mysterious treatment. Dried up plants are sitting on the table. A flip book, a suitcase, a broken heart…. Enchanted examinations begin. The bizarre, charismatic doctor continues his evaluation assisted by a fairy-like nurse. The process follows a secret logic and Heather understands that there is hope to be healed. Heather’s Dream has not been filmed in a classical way but Udo Kier’s and Heather Megan Christie’s acting has been photographed action by action, step by step with thousands of Polaroids and edited into sequence, combined with Super-8 footage. The bright light of California, the forsaken abandoned landscapes around 29 Palms and the faded colors of the Polaroid film contribute to the poetic and surreal atmosphere of he film.
