ELEPHANT'S DREAM (2014)
“Elephant’s Dream masterfully creates a dreamlike listlessness, sad and funny, that gently hints at great historical tragedy. A beautiful film.”
Elephant’s Dream takes us beyond the usual reports of the Congo, to provide poetic and compassionate insight into a country in transition, as seen through the microcosm of three state-owned institutions and its public sector workers in the third largest city in Africa, Kinshasa, a railway station, the central post office and the only existing fire station.
At times surreal, at times hopeful, this film will reveal a truly surprising perspective on lives lived beyond chaos.

“In the pantheon of documentaries about the Congo, “Elephant’s Dream” is an incredibly necessary addition.”
“Three ordinary stories combined in a extraordinary documentary.”
“One of the most tender and intense films I’ve seen in ages – the agony and the scars of colonialism are most artfully captured in a true film d’ auteur.” (Hubert Sauper)
