Lucid Dreaming

DIRECTOR | WRITER | CHOREOGRAPHER 

Lucid Dreaming tells the story of a girl in a train, that loses herself in the world of a man sitting across from her. As she gets carried away in his world, the train and its passengers become part of the experience she encounters through him. As a non-verbal meeting between two strangers is established, she experiences how imagination and empathy are powerful and vulnerable at the same time.

Lucid dreaming was written & directed by Emma Evelein and produced by Blanc film. The film premiered at the Netherlands Film Festival, where it won the Dutch Academy Award for best short film, called ‘Gouden Kalf’. In 2024 and 2025 the film will be shown at various festivals around the world. It has been accepted by the French Academy, also known as the “Cesar”.
