    It's Not Goodbye


    Just after the death of his grandfather, filmmaker Jesse Deganis Librera experiments with reaching out to "Grandpa Ernie" through the use of lucid dreams. Having had a strong relationship with his grandfather growing up, Jesse was not able to be with him at the time of his death. Searching for a sense of closure, as well as a new form of connection, Jesse travels through the world of dreams searching for his grandfather's wisdom as an adult.

    If your life was a dream, what would you do? I would travel the world (and universe), learn and have as much fun as possible, all without fear because I know I'd wake up safe in my bed in the morning. Jesse, you're crazy! It sounds interesting, but you know, there's so much work to do, and I don't have time to listen to this nonsense. While at times the world we live in can be very stressful, I like to carry this perspective with me into my experiences and into the things I create. Films are one way for me to express the ideas and thoughts that constantly fill my mind.
