Bob Dylan’s 123rd Dream

By: Michael Lubars '12

Advising Faculty: Ross Morin '05

This short experimental documentary, made entirely from video and audio clips found online, is an exploration into the falsities of the reality that we construct for ourselves as human beings. It is narrated by musical artists, or cultural "leaders," who exist in a superior social-realm than the masses, and who are praised by the public for their seemingly superhuman abilities. The film aims to question the viewer's notion of reality by re-contextualizing ordinary images, imbuing them with new meaning in an attempt to arrive at a greater truth about reality. But what that truth is, is up to the viewer to decipher.
