The Dreams of the Night Cleaners

Leila Sujir

1995, 47:00 minutes, colour, English


A road trip, a journey, a voyage through history and memory: a complex weave of drama, archival footage and animation in a fable format to explore the public mythologies in our culture which have had devastating effects on public policy, public attitudes and individual lives. "Dreams" use storytelling, humour, magic and history to seep away the misconceptions which haunt the lives of its characters. A co-production with LRS Productions, the Banff Centre for the Arts and the National Film Board of Canada.
