Description

In this short — inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson’s “The Land of Nod,” — a man, no longer young, climbs a mountain towards the possibility of buried gold in a Portuguese fortress and finds a fleeting dream of the wonder and the wanderlust of youth. Directed by Joshua Dylan Mellars, who previously produced an award winning trilogy of music documentaries (“Tango Illusions,” “Play Like a Lion” and Portuguese fado film “Heaven’s Mirror”, all in past WCFF’s), “The Land of Nod” was filmed on location in Portugal and in the San Francisco Bay Area.
