Synopsis by Mark Deming
Filmmaker Ben Speth has created an abstract, impressionistic feature that weaves a dreamlike picture of one day in the life of Alex (Anne Iobst), a dancer. In the 24 hours chronicled here, Anne drinks with a friend, goes to rehearsal, fights with her boyfriend and finds a lover as life in New York goes on around her -- kids play handball, the subway goes rushing by, people stroll in the park. dresden was screened as part of the Frontier series at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival.
