AlleyWay Daydream is a 15-20 minute surrealist film adaptation on the perception people have towards doing things they do not want to do. The main protagonist is a 25 year old male, who has finished university, but is stuck in a dead end job working for his father and at the same time is having relationship issues with his eccentric girlfriend.
Intended for UK and international film festival distribution, Alleyway Daydream is by independent production company Macabra Productions. Founded by Demitri Vassiliadis and supported by Daniel Isebor (Director of Operations), Macabra specialises in art such as surrealism, dada, transgressive, romanticism, symbolism and the abstract, with influences from the Japenese art of ero-guro, the avant-garde and even from the Grand Guignol. With the recent cuts in the arts, they also aim to re-establish the independent film industry by encouraging more and more independent film makers to come together to do what they love doing. Macabra hopes to provide a community orientated atmosphere in their projects where people who work with them will be encouraged to work as part of a team rather than a business.
There is a screening of Alleyway Daydream on Tuesday 24th January 2012 from 6.30pm at RichMix Cinema. If you would like more information on how to attend, click here.
