A lonely virtual reality actor parties with a woman sent to kill her. “Talk About Your Dreams,” directed by Robbie Barnett, is psychedelic sci-fi set in the near (?) future where hallucinogenic drugs have replaced anxiety. Kate Lyn Sheil plays the woman, a popular VR actor specializing in comfort porn. She’s at odds with the world (“disconnect is a popular lifestyle choice these days”), and with her fans — when one of them gets her number and tries to connect, she’s not interested. Then one night, she loses her keys, gets locked out of her apartment, and decides to get in touch. What follows is a night of drinking, karaoke, and ramen, despite the fan’s intent to end her life. A strange and singular vision composed of wonderfully expressive neon visuals (sometimes holographic) and great performances from the always intriguing Sheil and Sophie Traub. Made in 2015, but never released, NoBudge is happy to present the film as an Online Premiere.
