A movie showing various daydreams from people all over the world.

A couple of weeks ago a project in Cologne has started in order to increase and support cultural integration with the help of arts. For our opening event we chose a motto that refers to all off us: The Future.
This is how I got thinking about what future for me as an individual and for our (world) society should look like. The question I asked myself was: What is my dream?
Trying to combine both subjects - future and cultures - I ended up with this idea:
Collecting dayderams from people around the world - they can be about anything. Any little excerpt representing the wishes and dreams from any individual.
This can be as simple as wishing for your favorite meal, but also very abstract.
Of course the intention of a movie like this is much more than just entertainment, it shall be piece of art, representing the way people think and live today.
Please let me know what you think about this. I am looking forward to any kind of feedback and maybe even some first ideas?!
Take care!

      May 27 2013: I am glad you like it! I think reaching people that feel the same as the artists is often one of the intentions of art. So do not worry if you don't understnad it.
      The idea of animating the dreams sounds good. I will look around for some more ways to do this.
      Thanks for your idea.
