Over the past four decades, artist Isaiah Zagar has covered more than 50,000 square feet of Philadelphia with stunning mosaic murals. In A Dream is a documentary feature film that chronicles his work and his tumultuous relationship with his wife, Julia. It follows the Zagars as their marriage implodes and a harrowing new chapter in their life unfolds.
An exploration of the fallout that ensues when the line between art and life is blurred beyond distinction.
“IN A DREAM captures a family imploding. Their lives are laid bare, in broken bits, like the ceramic that Isaiah uses for his art, and they come together in IN A DREAM with sadness and beauty, rage and insight. (3.5 out of four stars)”—Philidelphia Inquirer
