Yesterday afternoon filmmaker Joshua Homnick told me a story about change. I can’t remember all of it. This is a bastardized version of the story.
It was about a girl, having a dream.
In the dream, she finds herself being tormented by monsters. The monsters are chasing her, hurting her. She tries to run from them, reason with them, all attempts to change the pieces of the dream.
And then she tries something radical.
She wakes up.
She goes from trying to change the situation, to transforming it.
