The Astronomical, Astrological, and Mythological

Synopsis: 

 

The main characters in the three scenes of "Astronomical, Astrological and Mythological" simply react, each in an individual way,

to the dreamlike situations that they experience both in their waking life and in their actual dreams.

For Michel there is a feeling of immanence, that something is going to happen.

He is haunted by a girl who, in his dreams, literally turns him upside down.

Jan ponders the importance of a small, apparently insignificant moment in which she helps another woman.

Steve's star-mapping activity and his real life have a feeling that dreams sometimes have.

For him, the two worlds have merged.

He views a film and visits a museum in the company of the same woman who appears in Michel's dreams.

About

The Astronomical, Astrological and Mythological is a short film and it contains

3 individual stories. It assembles and simulates dreamlike things and their

interaction with the psychological conscious activity of several individuals.

It explores how dreamlike states, states of liminal, states of consciousness and

unconsciousness are distinct and mixed up with each other by using a series of

simple gestures. There is some conflict, confusion, and things that are going on,

but no conspicuous climax. It shows the characters’ ordinary life and portrays

the suspense related to an inner process that is unresolved.
