Product Description

The lights dim. The surface brightens. Sound and image fill the movie theatre. Magic and dreams. Comrades in Dreams is a valentine to the pleasures of cinema. In a world dominated by cookie-cutter multiplexes, formulaic filmmaking, and commercial imperatives, filmmaker Uli Gaulke embarks on a journey to celebrate the essence of the cinematic experience by exploring the most alternative, "independent" strain of cinema owners and their film communities he can find.<BR><BR>Employing a stunning use of film narrative, Gaulke, a former projectionist and cinema owner himself, interweaves stories spanning four continents... a traveling Indian tent cinema to a North Korean "film club," a Wyoming woman's dedication to her local cinema group to an open-air cinema in Burkina Faso, the world's poorest country. In this poetic evocation of their lives, he captures a sense of the universal humanity that the fundamental act of "cinema" evokes in each of his characters. As we watch Comrades in Dreams, we remember our own first, childlike introduction to the magical dream world of cinema. <BR><BR>Outtake bonus features take you to a rare journey into North Korea.

Although the North Korean segment clearly strains credibility as a low-end theater, the film is an interesting comparative study of unusual theaters in 4 countries. The India segment is perhaps most memorable because of the crowds attempting to view the film, the theater's portability, and the visit by Bollywood stars. The North Korean theater is the plushest in the film, although one gets the impression that the film offerings are not always what we would think of as commercial fare. One film was about increasing agricultural production and those attending did not appear terribly enthusiastic. The struggling theater in Burkina Faso was an interesting peek into film distribution in that country - the theater picked them up and carried them on the back of motorbikes! The struggling theater in Wyoming showed the routine to keep the theater open - including visits to the local radio station to publicize coming attractions.
