Entre Suenos (Within Dreams)

Director: Yolanda Cruz

Institute History

  • 2000 Sundance Film Festival


A dreamlike narrative that explores the contrast between the waking state and the dreamworld of a young indigenous woman. Through dialogue with ancestors, memories of her past, and regard for the future, she finds a moment of peace and a place within her native identity where all things come together. In a sincere and searching manner, filmmaker Yolanda Cruz finds a visual and narrative style that marks a true storyteller.
