Director Shunichiro Miki (FUNKY FOREST: FIRST CONTACT, HIFF 2005) presents a funny, eerie, and surprisingly poignant peek into the strange forest of his dreams.  

Settle into your chair and be transported to a place both familiar and alien; where a giant shopgirl can barely fit in her store, there’s a weird green pod in every bedroom, and terrifying wood nymphs provide a heartbroken woman with the anatomically correct fruit everyone seems to covet.  In the end we are left, like Alice, with the Red King’s conundrum: are we dreaming them or are they dreaming us?
