Trois rêves de ma jeunesse

Three Dreams of My Childhood

Drei Träume meiner Kindheit

 
## ## ## ## ## ## ##

A girl boards a crimson train. She hides her face behind curtains. Her dreams spirit her away to another world: to the countryside. Sheep graze on the tracks. She counts. What is dreamt and what is real? In serene, high-contrast shots, French artistic duo Valérie Mréjen and Bertrand Schefer explore rural Romania and experiment with transitions between fantasy and reality.
