Between dream and dream is a short psychological drama revolving around three interlocking characters. An architecture student rushes in a desperate attempt to defeat the imminence of time, as that day also evokes the demons besetting the people she encounters - a melancholic taxi driver who is dealing with a heavy burden of loss, and the taxi clerk struggling to both keep her job and survive as a single mum. Unfortunately, they are constantly being overruled by the unkindness of time and space while helplessly trying to take hold of their own destiny.
This is my first short film, produced as the final project for the 3rd year of Directing for Film & TV at the Academy of Arts, Belgrade.
