In a Dream

In Person: Filmmaker JEREMIAH ZAGAR

At first glance, the grizzled, white-haired, bearded man in nondescript work clothes carrying tiles, broken glass, paint, and plaster looks more like construction worker than an artist. However, when these basic raw materials are applied to the walls of buildings that Isaiah Zagar has purchased in his South Philadelphia neighborhood the result is a fabulous public art museum. This nearly-lifelong effort has created an approximately 50,000 square foot building-to-building mosaic/mural that is both utterly unique and indescribably beautiful. Walls both within and without his buildings are sheathed in massive shattered glass and tiles in colorful designs interspersed with Picasso-like portraits. The incredible journey of Isaiah Zagar has now been captured by his son, Jeremiah Zagar, in an amazing film biography of his father√Ęs life and work that is also a history of their family. Isaiah has kept a daily autobiography recorded in one of those old-fashioned elementary-school composition notebooks. These diary entries, rich with profuse illustrations, provide an illuminating commentary on his creations, and his family. In the course of the making of the film, the father begins to remember traumatic childhood experiences of things long past, concealed memories that will transform the relationship of father, mother, and son.

USA, 2008, 80 min.
