Summary
Memories of a Dreamer is a first person account of the hardship suffered bya political prisoner from Chile's 1973 cruel dictatorship. Felix Mora recounts shocking details of the torture he endured, his escape from thedictatorship and the challenges he has faced as an exile in Italy and Canada. The question is has Felix allowed torture and exile to shatter his dreams of obtaining justice and being able to return to Chile? Or has heused that suffering as a force to accomplish that dream?Archival footage, dramatization and personal narratives bring to light anemotionally jolting and inspirational film, where the faces of terror andcourage are apparent not only in the subject's words, but also in the waythe audience will associate his memories with what they see.The film challenges the assumption that refugees can't participate in their homeland's struggles from abroad and still build successful lives in their new adopted countries. The film is also a testament to the lives of many exiled Chileans who never gave up
