Back Jury's Choice 2: Mads Mikkelsen: Lost Dreams

The Lost Dreams of Naoki Hayakawa

Ane Hjort Guttu, Daisuke Kosugi NO, JP, 2016, 25', DCP

Art director Naoki Hayakawa works 16 hours daily in a creative, neo-totalitarian advertisement company in Tokyo. The working pressure causes a mental condition between sleep and wakefulness where he has strange and wonderful dreams, creating a mixed state between reality and fantasy. When he tells his superiors about his state of mind, he is told to exploit his dreams by using ideas from them in his work. This triggers a crisis as it occurs to him that his whole self is being instrumentalized. (Ane Hjort Guttu & Daisuke Kosugi)
