While I Can Dream

UK, 2001 (MIFF 2002, Fiction)

Director: Jonathan Fox Bassett

A fantastic snapshot of a collection of characters that find comfort in their neuroses, wishes and simple desires. The narrative allows us to share their personal thoughts and dreams. Testament to the idea that the gravity of our perceptions can change our outlook on life.
