Is this real life or is it all just a fantasy? Taking inspiration from the psychological thriller Paprika (2006), we traverse space and time, blurring the line between the dream world and reality. Recognise her bright red top, capri trousers, and eerie butterfly visuals? It’s Paprika personified—minus the DC mini (a device that allows you to watch other people’s dreams) and creepy, surreal parade. Shot in the bustling streets of Tokyo, Paprika looks out of place which begs the question: What reality did Paprika end up in this time?
