Dreamcatcher

Dogwoof presents
A film by Kim Longinotto
DREAMCATCHER
Available on DVD on 27 April 2015

Acclaimed British director Kim Longinotto’s (Pink Saris, Rough Aunties) latest feature DREAMCATCHER opened to great acclaim earlier this year and now Dogwoof is proud announce the DVD is set for release on 27 April 2015. Along with the stunning feature, the DVD will include a BFI director Q&A and theatrical trailer.   

DREAMCATCHER is the inspiring story of Brenda Myers-Powell, a former prostitute who, with her Dreamcatcher Foundation, works tirelessly to turn around the lives of other women and girls and affect positive change in their lives. Telling her own story, Brenda’s story is their inspiration.

SYNOPSIS:
For twenty-five years Brenda Myers-Powell called herself ‘Breezy’ and she dominated her world, or that’s what she thought. It was a world that had turned her into a teenage, drug-addicted prostitute. After a violent encounter with a ‘john,’ Brenda woke up in the hospital and decided to change her life. Today she is a beacon of hope and a pillar of strength for hundreds of women and girls as young as fourteen who want to change their own lives.

Dreamcatcher explores the cycle of neglect, violence and exploitation which each year leaves thousands upon thousands of girls and women feeling that prostitution is their only option to survive. By following the very charming, charismatic and truly empathic Brenda, we enter the lives of young women and see in verite footage their realities from their points of view. While the world may overlook these women and men, thankfully Brenda has not, providing an unflinching expose which contrasts seeming hopelessness against the difference that one person can make in the lives of many.

Paths of Glory is a curious beast. It’s a war film whose battles are mostly fought in a court room. It’s a Kubrick epic, that feels like a small, claustrophobic indie movie.
