Memories of a Dreamer is a first person account of the hardship suffered by
a political prisoner from Chile's 1973 cruel dictatorship. Felix Mora
recounts shocking details of the torture he endured, his escape from the
dictatorship and the challenges he has faced as an exile in Italy and
Canada. The question is has Felix allowed torture and exile to shatter his
dreams of obtaining justice and being able to return to Chile? Or has he
used that suffering as a force to accomplish that dream?

Archival footage, dramatization and personal narratives bring to light an
emotionally jolting and inspirational film, where the faces of terror and
courage are apparent not only in the subject's words, but also in the way
the audience will associate his memories with what they see.

The film challenges the assumption that refugees can't participate in their
homeland's struggles from abroad and still build successful lives in their
new adopted countries. The film is also a testament to the lives of many
exiled Chileans who never gave up.
