Rock legend Stevie Nicks in collaboration with musical wizard Dave Stewart have co-produced and co-directed "In Your Dreams - Stevie Nicks" a documentary portrait of the illusive Nicks as they embark on a musical journey to write and record the critically acclaimed album "In Your Dreams". The film will premiere at the 35th International Hamptons Film Festival on Sunday October 7th and at the 20th annual Mill Valley Film Festival on Friday, October 12th which has already sold out.
Nicks, a multi Grammy Award winner and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, lead singer and emotional catalyst and vocalist for Fleetwood Mac and one of the most recognizable female rock stars and revered songwriters in the world, allowed cameras into her home as she holed up in a magical old mansion high atop the hills of Los Angeles with Stewart and a wild cast of characters. The vibrant documentary tracks the year (2010) which Nicks calls "the best year of my life". The result is a rare study of a fascinating artist on par with D. A. Pennebaker's classic Dylan documentary "Don't Look Back" or Madonna's notorious "Truth or Dare."
Stewart and Nicks, co-directors of the film also co-wrote many of the songs on "In Your Dreams". The inner life of the legendary Nicks has by her design long been kept at a distance from the public. We learn in "Dreams" that her world features, costume parties, joyous dinner feasts, tap dancing, fantasy creations and revealing songwriting and recording sessions all of which are captured on film. Also cameos by Edgar Allan Poe, Mick Fleetwood, Reese Witherspoon, a massive white stallion in the backyard, owls and naturally a few vampires who appear in several "home movie" style music videos.
