What does who lives without seeing dream about? What kind of images and figures populate his imagination and his dreams? The Dream of Homer is the journey into the dreams of Rosa, Domenico, Gabriel, Daniela and Fabio: blind from birth, united by their condition and by the habit of narrating their dreams to a tape recorder, an oral diary that each one of them records every morning after getting out of bed. Their five lives are connected by their dreams and the intimate reality that comes out during the Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. They don’t know each other, they live far away from each other, they lead different lives and cultivate different passions. But they are not afraid of telling us their stories. The Dream of Homer is a poetic exploration of how our dreams act to protect us, to secure us and to tell us and others something that could not even be imagined when awake.
