Despite being one of the most acclaimed films currently making the festival rounds, “The Dreamed Path” has yet to secure stateside distribution. Angela Schanelec’s film has screened at Locarno, Rotterdam, Toronto and New Directors/New Films; it’ll next make its way to Locarno in Los Angeles. Watch a trio of teasers below.

Here’s the synopsis, courtesy of ND/NF: ‘The Dreamed Path’ traces a precise picture of a world in which chance, emotion, and dreams determine the trajectory of our lives. In 1984 in Greece, a young German couple, Kenneth and Theres, find their romantic relationship tested after his mother suffers an accident. Thirty years later in Berlin, middle-aged actress Ariane splits with her husband David, an anthropologist. Soon, these two couples’ paths cross in unexpected ways, short-circuiting narrative conventions of cause and effect as well as common conceptions of the self.

“Angela Schanelec, part of the loose collective of innovative German filmmakers that came to be known as the Berlin School, puts her signature formal control to enigmatic and subtly emotional ends in a film of mesmerizing shots and indelible gestures.”
