Synopsis

A journey behind closed eyelids.

Tokyo Dreams is a short Zen-like film about sleeping commuters on the Tokyo subway.

Shooting without the knowledge of his subjects, director Nicholas Barker contemplates the stillness and vulnerability of his fellow passengers and wonders whether they will wake in time for their stop…

In a departure from candid filmmaking, Tokyo Dreams deploys a highly formal ‘photographic’ film style and extremely high production values.
