NO ONE DREAMS IN COLOR:
Man Vanishes Without a Trace.
This, the dramatic headline which stirs Andrew DiBenedetto’s curiosity, and initiates a life-changing course. The vanished man is Paul Kirby, whose nine-minute film, Wendigo—the only film Kirby ever made—was one of Andrew’s sacred cinematic totems. Compelled to visit Nine Peaks, the remote New Mexico town which had become Kirby’s adopted home, Andrew will discover that Kirby was one, among many, who have mysteriously vanished, and that Nine Peaks is, as claimed by one of its locals: an anomaly wrapped inside a conundrum and swallowed by a riddle. Andrew’s story quickly and irrevocably becomes entwined with the stories of others: Ali, a thirteen-year-old loner, comic book buff, and Beastie Boys fanatic, who is once again being tormented by werewolves; her mother, Callie, Paul’s lover, who has started working at the enigmatic Dream Bank; and Mack, the cameraman, who shot Wendigo with Paul up in the mountains. When the borders and barriers between dreams, memory, fiction and reality begin to dissolve, Andrew and company must navigate the shifting and unstable narratives of a weblike paradigm.
Equal parts psychic noir and existential montage, No One Dreams in Color explores the nature of time, identity and loss, while featuring a roll-call of cameos by such noted icons as Moon Knight, Bob Dylan, Carl Jung, Leonard Cohen, God, Mister Ed, Abraham Lincoln, and Santa Claus.
