A dream that never ends. A dream where you feel nothing.

In a research facility at a hospital, an international group of scientists are testing a new method of looking into the minds of coma patients. Do they dream? About what? Can contact be made, somehow?

Lukas is the man chosen to wire his brain to that of an anonymous test subject. His expectation, should the experiment be successful, is at most to see shapes and colours. He does not expect to arrive in a fully formed, sinister dream world, where the only other person is a beautiful young woman, Aurora. They begin the most destructive and impossible affair we’ve seen in years. Meanwhile, Lukas stands before a moral dilemma: how much should he tell his co-workers? How much can he tell Aurora?

Vanishing Waves is so stunning, sensual and intense that it makes you want to cry. It is an astonishing piece of cinematography. Prepare to have your breath taken away.

Short film: Voice Over
A male voice is telling a story accompanied by a vivid scene. Just as the story is about to end the voice corrects himself and starts over with a new story. And again. This touch can be devastating but it works wonderfully in this film.
