This selection presents five « trance-film » masterpieces from the 40s and the 50s. Ritual-like daydreams. Slumber, fantasies, homosexuality, macabre repressed desires. The filmmakers’ imaginary realms burst within poetic visions on the edge of the fantastic, where the cinematographic form reinvents itself.

– Maxime Lachaud
