One should always follow one’s dreams. This is the core idea behind dancing dreams. A young girl has recurring dreams of her dancing with joy, at parties, in clubs, on the dance floor, on the road, in the open and anywhere the heart desires. She dreams of dancing naked, free of all restrictions, and with nothing coming between her and her happiness. But then, she remembers that there is a problem. An accident as a child has left her leg lifeless, and she feels she can never dance again. She feels imprisoned in a cruel cell, unable to move. Does her determination to see her dreams materialize force her to break free from the prison with open doors inside her mind?
‘Dancing Dream’ is a narrative short by Director Helder Rock. Rock uses a kaleidoscopic style of visual storytelling to tell the story about the dreams of a young girl. Using powerful imagery in the girl’s narration conveys the true depth of the young girl’s agony at not being able to dance as the heart desires. An excellent selection of music and a powerful voice add substance to the narrative. The time spent detailing her dreams gives us a simple idea of the depth of the girl’s longing and makes the final payoff truly worthwhile.
‘Dancing Dreams’ is about following one’s dreams to overcome obstacles and achieve one’s goals. It is a salute to the unstoppable human spirit that believes in miracles.
