The Dry Rain

The Dry Rain tells the story of Laura and Jack, a married couple separated by fate. Laura has been in a coma for over a year and Jack, overwhelmed by the situation, is about to make the hardest decision of his life.

Just when her life appears over, Laura wakes up, but she does so within her subconscious—a place where a struggle between two worlds is about to take place.
Created as a thesis short for New York Film Academy, this exquisite film by Guillem Gutierrez Saura delivers magical realism in a modern sense; without veering from the possible, it's simultaneously neurophysical in explanation, and elevating. 

The Dry Rain subtly suggests that as much as we might understand the material world, we don't begin to understand what lies beyond it. You can watch the trailer here: The Dry Rain Trailer
