Part experimental essay, part visual poetry, and part independent documentary, Toni Serra’s films have explored the different meanings of trance and the realities of dreams. The gradual realisation that criticism should be a means by which to discover and shed light on other worlds has led him to consider and experiment with the relationship between video and visionary experience, between the inner world and the visions that move between worlds, spaces and times, between the real and the unreal, dreams and wakefulness, poetry and prophecy... in a journey that doesn’t just cross boundaries, but also erases them.
