Dreaming Walls at the Berlinale
12 February 2022 Dreaming Walls will premiere at the Berlinale
The film by Amélie van Elmbt & Maya Duverdier tells the story of the mythical Chelsea Hotel, a haven for artists in New York for over a century. Soon it will reopen to the public as one of New York’s most fashionable luxury hotels. Its residents, casualties of capitalism, and the walls themselves now face a turning point in their common history.
Dreaming Walls is a minority co-production of Basalt Film with the Belgium production company Clin d’Oeil Films. The film is selected in the Berlinale Panorama section.
