MDFF is pleased to announce the company’s new feature from co-directors Andrea Bussmann and Nicolas Pereda, TALES OF TWO WHO DREAMT, will have its World Premiere next month as part of the 66th Berlin International Film Fesitval in the festival’s Forum section. Organized by Arsenal – Institute for Film and Video Art, “the Berlinale Forum stands for new trends in world cinema and fresh narrative forms. Unconventional, essayistic works of cinema, long-term observations, documentaries, cinema from countries off the beaten track - everything which goes beyond the mainstream is brought together in this section of the Berlinale.”
TALES OF TWO WHO DREAMT is set in a housing block in Toronto and pivots on representation and self-representation. Here, a Roma family rehearses the stories of their past for the upcoming hearing on their residency status. Yet the occurrences in the housing block are also spun into legends, whereby the boundaries between reality and fiction and the documented and the performed no longer apply.
Co-directors Andrea Bussmann and Nicolas Pereda will be in attendance. For more information on the festival and program, read the press release here. For updates on the film, follow MDFF on Facebook and Twitter .
