We had heard through the grapevine that Dreamers was a must-see at the Palm Springs International Film festival.  So we sent Chad out to investigate.  Here is what he had to say….

ABOUT CHAD

“Coffee drinking, cat loving, beach born, desert raised, screenwriter.

My muses go by the names of Natalie Noel and Josephine Rose.

My influences come from my friends, family, heartache, life, Jim Morrison, Charlie Kaufman, and most of all Love.

Film is a place to get lost, for an average of two hours nothing matters but what is shining off a bright wall in a dark room.” – C.A.

Dreamers

a film review by Chad Austin

Through the eyes of truly insightful and inspiring talents working in film today, this documentary works through film from the conception to the final product with the main focus being the screenplay. From legends of the script like the great Frank Pierson (Cool Hand Luke, Dog Day Afternoon) to great fresh minds such as Maiwenn (The Artist) to everyone in-between like Jacques Audiard (Rust and Bone, Un Prophete), James Gray (Two Lovers, We Own The Night), Michel Gondry (Be Kind Rewind), Guillermo Arriaga (Amores Perros, 21 Grams), Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind), and Emir Kusturica (Time of the Gypsies).

 

    Like the tag lines for the film say it really is a “Poetic Journey” down the path of their development in their films and for them as artists. Noelle Deschamps really did something wonderful with “Dreamers” her debut feature. Getting into the heart of the artists and like a screenplay for a narrative film the documentary has three acts basically working from what they wanted to be as a child, when they decided to get into writing and making films, hardships and rewards of being a filmmaker, and the final thoughts with a lot of laughs and insightful recollections throughout.  

    I am Very happy that I did not miss the North American premiere of this film.  Being honest I could be called completely biased because the subject is something I am very passionate about but I did my best top compartmentalize my emotional attachment to these filmmakers and the essence of the story to give an honest opinion and I must say this should be seen.
