In a Dream

Just read an interesting article in the August issue of Print describing the movie In A Dream, which will premiere in August on HBO. The movie documents the life of Isaiah Zagar, an artist who creates “obsessively detailed mosaics of mirrored glass, ceramic, and paint” in his South Philadelphia neighborhood. Isaiah is said to suffer from “manic creativity” (which is the part that I really find intriguing). The film was made by Zager’s son, Jeremiah to “document his father’s psychological battles and tug-of-war with the rest of the family”. Looks brilliant.
