HUNGER Exclusive: Celeste’s Inner World

The singer-songwriter and former HUNGER cover star gives us the lowdown on how the pandemic has impacted her emotional wellbeing and creative process.

Debuting on HUNGER Online, this new short film by director and former counsellor Tom Dream sees Listen Up Issue cover star Celeste delve into her inner psyche over the past year. 

Shot during lockdown and reflecting on the turmoil of that period, the film sees Celeste discuss her experiences of vivid dreaming, interweaving this with a hypnotic live performance. 

Speaking of the project, Tom says: “Lockdown has given me an opportunity as a director to combine my background in psychology and counselling with my work in music and documentary film making.” Explaining further, he notes that; “In this dream analysis series, I talk with artists about the effect of the current pandemic on both their emotional wellbeing and their creative process, and how these two things intersect. Each of the interviews is edited to previously unused footage from pre-lockdown shoots with the artist in question, as well as abstract footage from my archive.”
