|Plot||Four lives that could not be more different and a single passion that unites them: the unconditional love for their cinemas, somewhere at the end of the world. COMRADES IN DREAMS brings together six cinema makers from North Korea, America, India and Africa and follows their efforts to make their audiences dream every night. In doing so, the film dives into a set of fascinating lives where stories from the everyday and from the silver screen frequently merge into something magical.... see Comrades in Dreams on IMDb|

|The lights dim. The surface brightens. Sound and image fill the movie theatre. Magic and dreams. Comrades in Dreams is a valentine to the pleasures of cinema. In a world dominated by cookie-cutter multiplexes, formulaic filmmaking, and commercial imperatives, filmmaker Uli Gaulke embarks on a journey to celebrate the essence of the cinematic experience by exploring the most alternative, "independent" strain of cinema owners and their film communities he can find.|
Employing a stunning use of film narrative, Gaulke, a former projectionist and cinema owner himself, interweaves stories spanning four continents... a traveling Indian tent cinema to a North Korean "film club," a Wyoming woman's dedication to her local cinema group to an open-air cinema in Burkina Faso, the world's poorest country. In this poetic evocation of their lives, he captures a sense of the universal humanity that the fundamental act of "cinema" evokes in each of his characters. As we watch Comrades in Dreams, we remember our own first, childlike introduction to the magical dream world of cinema.
Outtake bonus features take you to a rare journey into North Korea.
