Archive of Dreams


Year 2008
Director Tomas Sheridan
Producer Lindsay Goodall

Carlo Roda is from the Italian coastal town of La Spezia. For over 30 years he has collected thousands of films, from Italian Neo Realist classics to Hollywood horrors. Having once trawled shutdown cinemas and rubbish dumps for forgotten gems, his life’s work now sits in a damp, dusty warehouse. This is the story of an incredible film collection and its cynical owner, whose world is turned upside down as a group of local film lovers try to restore these pieces of cinematic history to their former glory. How will Carlo react to the invasion of his archive of dreams?

Archive of Dreams was produced through the GMAC Film short film production and talent development initiative GMAC Shorts.
