Dreamwood is one of the most abstract of avant-garde poet, playwright, and director James Broughton's works. There is no plot; the film wanders from one sight to another, dwelling on some and rushing past others, in the manner of a daydream. Among the images glimpsed are angels, hippies, statues, and icons. Throughout, Broughton touches on the contemporary resonance of mythic imagery.
