“…where “Under a Shipwrecked Moon” triumphs is Alli’s extraordinary dream and hallucination sequences which take the imagination into new and daring realms that few artists could ever aspire to conceive…” — PHIL HALL. FILMTHEAT.COM

His consciousness
drifts though a series of dreams, memories and visions of his first love, the sorceress, who beckons him to join her in the Great Beyond in this surreal fable of true love, giant hedgehogs and the mystical depths of family bonds. Antero Alli (in petrson), Super-8 film &DV, 2003; 96 min.
