Bola and Hugo discuss Hugo’s screenplay and forthcoming film, “The Eternal Sleep.” They also delve into what it means to dream, what dreams are and some personal experiences they’ve had in their own dreams.
The Eternal Sleep’s premise: Set in New York City in 2010, The Eternal Sleep straddles the questions of life after death and the moral choices individuals can make about their own lives. The film revolves around an eccentric neuroscientist trying to find out whether we can stay alive in our dreams if we die in our sleep.
We all wonder what happens after the final closing of our eyelids, Dr. Jacquelyn Walsh is no different. The only thing that could separate her from your average person is rather than the traditional view most people have of death being a passage into another higher realm, Jacquelyn believes it’s actually just a continuation we visit on a nightly basis. She claims to know that dreams are in actual fact eternal life and that we already know where heaven and our souls reside – our minds.
