    A woman goes from room to room, performs her daily routines, but is constantly interrupted by a dark shadow. Carolina Sandvik puts a hypnotic nightmare on repeat and makes the viewer disturbingly aware of the voyeuristic pleasure of violence. Who will die in your entertainment tonight?

    Director's Statement

    Ambiguous subjectivity and objectification, violence as entertainment and various familiar genre conventions. Dreams from the ocean is the result of hours and hours of watching horror film, then hours and hours of monotonous animation work. A doll, acting as an actress, acting the victim of murder. The set is a model and animation itself is a model, an imitation, adding another layer of fiction to a story about fiction.
