I sogni di Roma

“I Sogni di Roma” explores the resilience of our imagination in the unpredictable times of the pandemic, as told by the Romans through the dreams they’ve had during 50 days of strict quarantine. The Romans’ voices in this series of five short films provide us an exercise in survival. The dreamers recorded their voices alone, shut into their house, in a similar position to when they dreamed, and sometimes right after a dream. They transmit the facts — images, sounds and sensations — of their strongest dreams during the lockdown.
