Screening: Shirin Neshat's Feature Film "Land of Dreams"

On July 7 for one night only, you have an opportunity to attend an exclusive screening of Iranian-born artist and filmmaker Shirin Neshat’s feature film “Land of Dreams” (2021), hosted by MOCA Toronto at Paradise Theatre.

The film stars Hollywood names such as Sheila Vand, Matt Dillon, William Moseley, Isabella Rossellini, Christopher McDonald and Anna Gunn.

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.
