Product Description

In Dream of Light, the celebrated director of The Spirit of the Beehive, Victor Erice, achieves the miraculous: a direct look into how an artist creates.

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.
Dream of Light (Quiince Tree of the Sun). El Sol del Membrillo. A film by Victor Erice, inspired by the painter Antonio Lopez Garcia. With the presence of Antonio Lopez, Maria Moreno, Enrique Gran. Produced by Maria Moreno in collaboration with the Instituto de la Cinematografi a y de las Artes Audiovisuales. A Rosebud Films, S.L. release.
