Synopsis


In 1879, a French postman named Ferdinand Cheval began to build a palace he had seen in a dream.


Using stones from the forest, he began to build, alone.


It took him 33 years.


In 1970, a woman from Hemel Hempstead decided to paint the inside of the Sistine Chapel on the walls of her council flat, using only her fingertips.


It took her 40 years.


She had never been to Italy.


Using dream-like projections, a fractured narrative and live sound processing, Significant Other's Castles Palaces Castles is a kaleidoscopic snapshot of a man's journey in building his dream palace.


Halfway between memory and mirage, Significant Other wants you to dive deep into the world of compulsive builders, architects of nothingness and the painters of frenzied boredom.
