Scottish filmmaker Amy Hardie has built a career making science documentaries that reflect her rational temperament. When she dreamed one night that her horse was dying, only to wake the next morning and find the horse dead, she dismissed the incident as a coincidence. Then she dreamed she would die at age 48 — only one year away. When Hardie does get ill, just as the dream predicted, she visits neuroscience experts and eventually a shaman. The Edge of Dreaming is an evocative, intimate chronicle of that year and a fascinating investigation into the human subconscious. The film has had tremendous success in several festivals, and was featured on PBS last year.
Viva Doc will be co-hosting a screening of the film, followed by a Q A with Amy. This event will take place this Thursday, March 3rd at 7pm in Rm. 502 at the 1104 S. Wabash building. It wil be a great opportunity to meet an acclaimed filmmaker and enjoy a very introspective piece of work.
We hope to see you there!
