Homer is the first man in Western literature who writes and tells about dreams. Homer, for Western culture was blind since birth. But this didn’t stop him narrating one of the richest and most vivid imagery in human history.
What does who lives without seeing dream about?
What kind of images and figures populate his imagination and his dreams?
The Homer’s Dream is the journey into the dreams of Rosa, Domenico, Gabriel, Daniela and Fabio: blind from birth, united by their condition and by the habit of narrating their dreams to a tape recorder, an oral diary that each one of them records every morning after getting out of bed.
Homer’s Dream is a poetic exploration of how our dreams act to protect us, to secure us and to tell us and others something that could not even be imagined when awake.
