Tales of Two Who Dreamt

Champ libre

Canda, Mexico

Selected as part of our series Champ libre by Antoine Bourges, director of Concrete Valley, currently playing.


Photographed in austere black and white, Tales of Two Who Dreamt spins mythic tales around an actual Roma family living inside a Toronto housing block for asylum seekers. As the family awaits their day in court, the kids try to stave off boredom by goofing around (often playing solo games of soccer in the halls) while the adults repeat and refine stories about their past, some real and some fictional. Observational but never cold, this hybrid work offers a look into how a marginalized people construct fiction and their own identities.
