“Nights through dreams tell the myths forgotten by the day” C.G Jung

Based on personal recordings of people narrating their nightmares, we race through shared unconscious desires and fears.

WE ARE IN A DREAM is a short experimental documentary that combines different animation techniques to real, authentic recordings of people narrating their own recurring dreams.

The film has been shown in over twenty international film festivals around the world including Atlanta Film Festival and Tampere Film Festival and it was awarded as best experimental film in Prague Independent Film Festival.
