The Edge of Dreaming
Director Amy Hardie will be present (from Scotland!) for Q+A!
Official Site | Directed by Amy Hardie
Scottish filmmaker Amy Hardie has built a career making science documentaries that reflect her rational temperament. When she dreamed one night that her horse was dying, only to wake the next morning and find the horse dead, she dismissed the incident as a coincidence. Then she dreamed she would die at age 48 – only one year away. When Hardie does get ill, just as the dream predicted, she visits neuroscience experts and eventually a shaman. THE EDGE OF DREAMING is an evocative, intimate chronicle of that year and a fascinating investigation into the human subconscious.
About The DocYard:
For decades, Boston has been a center for documentary filmmaking. It is a place where students come to learn and experiment, where some of documentary’s giants are teaching and creating new work, and where the craft is continuously nurtured and expanded. Today’s filmmakers are breaking new ground that has its foundation, more often than not, in Boston’s rich documentary legacy.
Celebrating what is innovative, interesting, and inspiring in documentary, The DocYard is a bi-weekly film and discussion series at the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge. Every other Tuesday from February through April, we will gather together to be introduced to films and filmmakers and connect with one another.
Our goal is to grow a vibrant, creative community for Boston’s filmmakers, film students and film lovers through each of these special events.
