Censor of Dreams by Léo Berne and Raphaël Rodriguez

In the human mind, there may be an entire world controlling the thoughts. Or perhaps even censor them as in the short film Censor of Dreams by Léo Berne and Ralphaël Rodriguez.

The directing pair crafted a dark comedy based on the book “Yume no ken’estukan” or titled Censor of Dreams by the author Yasutaka Tsutsui. The sci-fi narrative follows a team of people who try to block their host’s painful dreams and memories.

Here is the official synopsis of the short film:

Night after night, The Censor and his team mold Yoko’s memories into fantastical dreams. Tonight nothing happens as planned.
