Land of Dreams

Join MOCA Toronto for an exclusive screening of Shirin Neshat’s feature film Land of Dreams at Paradise Theatre.

The story of Land of Dreams takes place in the near future in a small town in America. Simin is an Iranian immigrant who works for the United States Census Bureau which has begun a programme to record citizens’ dreams. Unaware of the American government’s devious plot, Simin’s personal obsession is to try to capture her interviewees’ dreams by photographing and later secretly impersonating them in Farsi, then publishing them on social media. Playful and poignant, Land of Dreams acknowledges in a surreal and satirical way, the greatness of the American experiment while offering a warning beacon for what could come.

Featuring: Gaius Charles, Matt Dillon, Anna Gunn, William Moseley, Isabella Rossellini, and Sheila Vand. Tickets: $15; Student, Seniors & Members: $10
