Un amour rêvé

A Dreamed Love

As a child, Arthur is fascinated by the idyllic love story between his grandparents, a beautiful Congolese woman married to a Belgian settler. But shortly after his grandmother’s death, the young director uncovers some family records which shatter his childhood memories. These records form the starting point for an exploration into the colonial heritage of a mixed-race family, whose sufferings had been cloaked in silence.
