Inspired by a short story by Argentinean writer Jorge Luis Borges, Aleph blends cinematic elements of narrative fiction and magic realism and the rigor and mechanics of documentary practice to explore the dreams, stories, thoughts and lived and imagined experiences of its protagonists – actors, performers, musicians and non-professionals—in ten countries across five continents. The film observes and documents the ties that bind people across space and time. The experience of meaning, as both revelation and challenge, is what defines the narrative. Poet Anne Waldman is the voice of the dreamer.
