Sable noir
Film -

Alice, a young woman living in the Northern France, finds mysterious tapes with people narrating their nightmares. As she is looking for the sender, the limits between dreams and reality get obscured. “You have wakened not out of sleep, but into a prior dream, and that dream lies within another, and so on, to infinity, which is the number of grains of sand. The path that you are to take is endless, and you will die before you have truly awakened.”
Jorge Luis Borges, The Writing of the God in L’Aleph. 1949. Traduction de Roger Caillois.
