Dream Life

No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Mireille Dansereau
1972 / 90min / DCP

The first female-directed narrative fiction feature to come out of Quebec, Dansereau’s sensual and beguiling Dream Life centers on Isabelle and Virginie (Liliane Lemaître-Auger and Véronique Le Flaguais), two single young women who meet through their work at a Montreal film production company and become fast friends, sharing their romantic fantasies and disillusions, and setting out together to conduct a sort of field study in desire. Punctuating her story with visions of memories and daydreams, Dansereau creates an intimate interior double portrait, exploring the tricky relationship between Women’s Liberation and the prison of yearning.

The Dream Life was restored in 2K from the original reversal Super 16 mm elements by Elephant - mémoire du cinema Québécois.
