God's Nightmares

Daniel Cockburn

2019, 05:00 minutes, colour, English


Even the all-powerful creator of the universe has bad dreams from time to time.
A panoply of film clips illustrate God's interior monologue, in which he muses about his recurring nightmare of being an everyman.
“In the latest of his idiosyncratic blends of found-film hallucination and metaphysical comedy routine, director Daniel Cockburn imagines the thoughts that rattle through the Almighty’s head late at night, presuming that He has a head at all.” – TIFF
Best played at full brightness.
Sound mix is intentionally sparse, with moments of silence in between spoken text.
