Dreaming Rivers

Dreams, memories and mourning intertwine in a tale of spirit, nation and reconciling belonging. Evocatively interwoven by director Martina Attille, Dreaming Rivers illustrates (to echo the director’s own words) ‘the spirit of modern families touched by the experience of migration.’
