Video, 46 minutes, Betacam SP.

Collections: The Glenbow Art Gallery & Archives, and the National Gallery of Canada.

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 uses storytelling, humour, magic and history to sweep away the misconceptions which haunt the lives of its characters.
