Dream Machine

This film is about the impossibility of making a film. An experiment in the classroom during a cinema class in the Federal University of Amapá. 
All decisions among the script and the production were voted upon, during an essential moment in the Brazilian society where the role of education and democracy is discussed at the classroom. This film is an open experiment about democratic processes, collective production  and it's schizophrenia. A microcosmos of the distances and violences that each day gain more strength currently, in Brazil. 
A happening film, that reveals the process of fragility within our relational communities of shared goods. What is the role of art and education in such a space? Would art become the only place of sensitivity?
