From the Back Cover
Dream of Light "manages to achieve a mesmerizing intensity. The purity and br eadth... are all the more gratifying in view of its unprepossessing style. It becomes a thought ful delicate inquiry into the essence of the artistic process and a tribute to the beauty and m utability of nature." - Janet Maslin, The New York Times. "One of the most intriguing fi gures in the cinema." - Georgia Brown, The Village Voice.
In Dream of Light, t he celebrated director of "The Spirit of the Beehive," Victor Erice, achieves the miraculous; a direct look into how an artist creates. Antonio Lopez Garcia is Spain's leading painter who, f or several weeks one autumn, tries to paint the sun filtering through the leaves of a quince tr ee. Erice documents this process. His observations are "elegantly restrained, at once matter-of -fact and lyrically evocative." Erice, who has made only three films in 30 years, creates a kin d of diary, a journal of an artist's work and life, and a film about creation and life itself. The film is both comical and poetic; a remarkable, beautiful journey full of nuance - it is as if the person watching the film were given the privilege of watching God create the world.
