| Yesterday's Dream - the nightmare of loss
Much like the song "My Immortal" by Evanescence, "Yesterday's Dream" touches on the pain suffered not by losing one you love, but the inability to let them go.

When Phil's wife, Emily, is killed in a car accident, Phil becomes haunted by Emily's memory, to the point where he brings her back into his life with drug induced hallucinations. He fights with his own grip on reality, but sinks further into the fake world he's created where Emily is still alive and they are together.

The film touches on the agony of being haunted by a memory - trapped in a moment in the past, so unable to move forward.

The film is black and white when Phil is 'sober', showing the dull and emptiness of his life. But when Phil is high and seeing Emily, the film is in colour, but lit in dull yellows, giving it a dream-like quality, but also a fake happiness with this 'false' sunshine hue.

Adrienne Wilkinson (Xena: Warrior Princess, As If) plays Emily. Wilkinson makes a masterful use of her eyes - expressing emotions with looks that say more than other actors can with words. Her eyes can invite you, or haunt you.

"Yesterday's Dream" is a short film from Andrew Ward and Oriol Bernat - a good debut film for both writer and director.
