Straight out of the mind of debut director Mahum Jamal, A Good Dream portrays a vision of a fantasy New York through the eyes of a daring, lonely, female poet. A Good Dream takes the viewer on the surreal journey of a young woman in her 20s, lost deep in her mind’s world. As the protagonist, Uma (Melany Bennett), dives deeper into the abstract narrative, the audience joins her in unravelling the imaginary from the film reality. This artistic, unique vision takes the viewer on a conceptual, intellectual journey in a coming of age story true to the new millennium. The film sets a precedent for more work to come from the 25-year-old, San-Francisco-based writer/director. A Good Dream is a film for audiences with a wide imagination and a hunger for beautiful imagery.
