The first recreation of Abraham Lincoln's assassination ever to be filmed in the historic Ford's Theatre, The Persistence of Dreams is a four-minute real-time depiction of one of the most tragic events in American history. In addition to being the most historically accurate interpretation of the assassination to date, the story also explores the little known fact that Lincoln actually dreamt about his murder only a few days before it took place. The film debuts the use of Large Format Negative Repurposing (LFNR™), a post-production process that involves zooming into an IMAX negative to create shot coverage. Using LFNR, Director Erik Courtney follows the action in a way that leaves the audience feeling as if they were actually witnessing Lincoln's murder.
