Documentary Proposal
We would like to inquire different people from De La Salle University how they perceive
dreams and how it affects them if they experienced one. We would like to know how dreams are
significant and how it might or not inspire something within us. We would also inquire if they
believe the interpretations given by psychologist. Overall, we want to see the clear idea of the
people and their opinions regarding dreams and dreaming.

Introduction

Many people have dreams every night. It could be very vivid or vague, realistic or
unrealistic. Dreams have been seen as a connection to the unconscious mind. They range from
normal and ordinary to overly surreal and bizarre. Dreams can have varying natures, such as
frightening, exciting, magical, melancholic, adventurous, or sexual. The events in dreams are
generally outside the control of the dreamer, with the exception of lucid dreaming, where the
dreamer is self-aware. Dreams are successions of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that
occur involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of sleep. There are many possibilities of
what might our next dreams be, but how does our dreams affect us as we wake up from our
sleep? The content and purpose of dreams are not definitively understood, though they have
been a topic of scientific speculation, as well as a subject of philosophical and religious interest,
throughout recorded history. Dreams can at times make a creative thought occur to the person or
give a sense of inspiration. It mainly occurs in the rapid-eye movement (REM) stage of sleep
when brain activity is high and resembles that of being awake. REM sleep is revealed by
continuous movements of the eyes during sleep. At times, dreams may occur during other stages
of sleep. However, these dreams tend to be much less vivid or memorable.
Opinions about the meaning of dreams have varied and shifted through time and culture.
The earliest recorded dreams were acquired from materials dating back approximately 5000
years, in Mesopotamia, where they were documented on clay tablets. In the Greek and Roman
periods, the people believed that dreams were direct messages from one and/or multiple deities,
from deceased persons, and that they predicted the future. Some cultures practiced dream
incubation with the intention of cultivating dreams that are of prophecy.
Sigmund Freud, who developed the discipline of psychoanalysis, wrote extensively
about dream theories and their interpretations in the early 1900s. He explained dreams as
manifestations of our deepest desires and anxieties, often relating to repressed childhood
memories or obsessions. In The Interpretation of Dreams (1899), Freud developed a
psychological technique to interpret dreams and devised a series of guidelines to understand the
symbols and motifs that appear in our dreams.
