Fever Dreams and Heavenly Nightmares
This DVD compilation of Chel White’s independent short films spans the 20 year period between 1985 to 2005. It is an hour's worth of award-winning short films, astonishing animation, and a slew of behind the scenes and bonus material. From a story about a man who is obsessed with soil to an expressionistic choreography of photocopied bodies, Chel White’s films defy easy categorization. Exploring love, obsession, memories and dreams, his work is sublime and intricately beautiful. Yet many of his films also have a darkly humorous edge to them.
“I have been amazed at the stylistic and thematic diversity in (Chel White’s) films. Surreal, ethereal, wistful, and witty are some of the descriptions that come to mind. Mainly I just allow my imagination to be taken into his complex, mysterious worlds.” – Chale Nafus, Austin Film Society
Film titles include: A Painful Glimpse Into My Writing Process, Choreography for Copy Machine, Magda, Dirt, Passage, Soulmate, Eclipse, and Machine Song (in bonus section).
