Because We Dreamt of Flying
Because We Dreamt of Flying is a love story without a kiss, a crime film without justice, a documentary fairytale. It is the story of Marx and Mercedes, two lost souls looking to re-write their own stories along the cliffs of South Italy. But when fiction becomes truth, things take a dangerous turn. There's only so much freedom this world can bear.
Because We Dreamt of Flying was shot chronologically on location for five weeks in an intimate team. The team worked on the basis of character biographies and a treatment. Most of the film's dialogue is improvised.
