Zagar’s documentary “In a Dream” : Love is a Work of Art

In A Dream

早前一部奥斯卡最佳纪录片《Man on Wire》,让我透过荧幕感受到【二十世纪最伟大艺术犯罪】的撼动力,今早在电影网【awardsdaily.com】看到其作者介绍的另一部以【艺术】为主轴的纪录片《In a Dream》,则将会是我下一部 eye on 的作品,除因绚丽多彩且极具生命力的预告片,还有这一句 tagline:【Love is a Work of Art】。

有感而发的是,活于一段拼凑形态的人生,酿爱的艺术却始终学不精。

此纪录片是 Zagar 家族的真实故事,由儿子 Jeremiah Zagar 执导,展示其著名艺术家父亲 Isaiah Zagar 在过去40年于费城镶嵌超过50,000平方英尺的精致马赛克壁画,并叙述父母亲Julia Zagar所历经的一段狂烈情路,而至迎向婚姻新页章……

由于得耗上一段时日才有望观赏此片,再加上中文网的资料有限,惟恐解读有误,谨此附上官网的原文大纲:【Over the past four decades, Isaiah Zagar has covered more than 50,000 square feet of Philadelphia with stunning mosaic murals. In A Dream is a documentary feature film that chronicles his work and his tumultuous relationship with his wife, Julia. It follows the Zagars as their marriage implodes and a harrowing new chapter in their life unfolds. 】

SXSW Film Festival Woodstock Film Festival 等【热身电影节】,《In a Dream》连连夺走评审及观众芳心,至于能否振住前势至来届奥斯卡,纵使言之过早,但绝对具备教人拭目以待的潜力。
