Who doesn’t want to escape from reality now and then? But as our smartphones, tablets and laptops offer us all the digital diversion we need, we forget how to free our minds without them. “Our own imagination offers the best escape, but passive entertainment has made our minds lazy,” says Matthijs Holland. His film ‘Escapism’13’ shows the magical world that we carry with us inside our heads – the perfect hiding place for everyone who wants to break free. The bizarre, but intriguing fantasies we see in the film are designed to remind us of the endless power of imagination.
