Through My Dreams Like a Knife is a dialogueless black & white short film about self-reflection, wandering and transformation.


A photographer wanders in the forest and discovers an intriguing building. Elsewhere, mythical characters are immersed in playing minigolf. Everywhere, the unconscious domain of dreams and archetypes permeates waking reality, animate but unseen.

Sometimes life feels like you’ve stuck in a loop like a worn-out vinyl record. And even if you’re not stuck in a loop, do you ever wonder whether there’s life outside of the groove?
