Combining puppets, live action, songs, and animation, Glossary of Broken Dreams offers a wild ride through politics, economics, society and culture. Whatever you thought you knew, or assumed, about left and right, market forces, freedom, privacy and identity is re-evaluated and re-mixed in the rapid flow of ideas that forms Glossary of Broken Dreams.
Director Grenzfurthner approaches this essay-documentary with a genuine sense of mischievous joy and a deep understanding of the shifting landscape. The film plays with complex ideas opening them up with a gleeful enthusiasm, and uses humour and wit to explore its themes and make them immediately accessible.
Winning accolades at the Austrian Film Festival, Impact Docs, IndieFest Film Awards, and Prince of Prestige Academy Award, as well as the Subversive Cinema Society, Glossary of Broken Dreams is the film we need to understand the world we live in.
