After finishing a prison sentence Alberto tries to return to normal life and forget the solitude and violence he was subjected to. But as much as he tries to escape it, the sense of claustrophobia and the fear he might return to prison follow him everywhere: in the room where he sleeps and at the club where he starts working.

Andalé became a teenager just as the war turned everyday life into a living hell. She is severely traumatised after being brutally raped and her parents spend all their savings fleeing to Norway, hoping to secure a safe future for the family. Kasper grew up in a home where emotions and togetherness have taken precedence over the pursuit of material status and has always had close contact with nature. The late summer meeting and love that arises between Kasper and Andalé on the magical island becomes a highlight in their lives. When Andalé´s family is deported, she looses all her future hope.

In an era characterized by the ceaseless barrage of digital imagery, where pixels paint narratives and screens mirror realities, the influence of images on human thought and behaviours has reached unprecedented heights. "The Dreams in Images," an essay documentary, offers an introspective journey through contemporary China's ever-evolving landscape of image culture. In this essay, I critically explore our documentary's thematic underpinning, dissecting the profound relationship between the people of China and the images that inundate their lives and beliefs.

Tamara and Firas, a couple, drive in the desert as part of a reality show, while documenting thems1elves with head cameras for the show. She is a prison social worker, he is an ex-convict. A Fata Morgana (mirage) on the road causes an accident. To avoid consequences, they hide the evidence and reshoot everything from the start. But like the mirage they saw, nothing is as it seems.

A speechless story of a young boy in a skeleton costume and his father’s swimming trip to a lido. It seems like an ordinary trip until a strange woman with sunglasses joins the father at the pool.
