In My Dream / Bir Düş Gördüm

by Murat Çeri

(Fiction, Turkey, 2020, 99’, C, En ST) with Nevzat Yilmaz, Harun Reha Pakoglu, Ferda Isil

In My Dream

Young Tariq loses his parents in a tragic car accident and settles to live with his great parents in a traditional Turkish village. He suffers from amnesia and can’t decipher the strange dreams he is having. A meeting with an orphan donkey cub helps him reconnect with his past.


« This film invites everybody, not only to hear the voice of nature and view its magic, but to feel the harmony of village life and connect to our own inner self. By expressing local values and attitudes to life, and sharing the traditions and customs that make people feel connected, I believe my film tells a universal story. My hope is that everyone who loves walking barefoot in the grass will also love watching I Had a Dream. » Murat Çeri
