Film footage from: 'The Matrix', 1999.
Neo, the hero from the movie THE MATRIX, lies in the foreground, moving restlessly sometimes, as if he were having a bad dream. Behind him, a “projected” woman reports - with a foreign accent - on the content of the same film. From time to time, images of Neo's or Trinity's face fall through the screen, like sudden memories. A kind of therapeutical situation is constructed, in which one may reflect about what is real and what is imagination, and about the different realities of the conscious and the unconscious.
