Dreamstates: A Film By Anisia Uzeyman with Music by Saul Williams

dreamstates pres hall

Equal parts love story, road movie, and Americana, DREAMSTATES tells the haunting tale of two wayward souls (Saul Williams and Anisia Uzeyman) discovering their love for one another in their dreams and reality while touring the United States with some of the most pivotal figures of the Afro-Punk movement – Sultry, sensual, and quixotic, an underground portrait of America: haunted and hollow.

"Uzeyman later captures the insecurity and alienation that can portend a crumbling relationship. The couple falls out of love in equally intimate but awkward exchanges and pregnant pauses that say much more than either character could about the status of their journey, which fades across a series of avant-garde performances and backstage exchanges that give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the major players in the Afropunk movement. Uzeyman’s weapons of choice reinforce the importance of the left-of-center cultural phenomenon, which has grown beyond the borders of Brooklyn to venues in Atlanta and Paris in recent years." - Kara Slamb
