Participatively produced by young people at Wyre Forest Special School, Never Stop Dreaming is a beautifully touching and poignant film about the struggle some of us face against those who try to put us down, those who try to tell us we are worthless, those who try to tell us that we cannot follow our dreams.
Told through the eyes of Edwin, a young man who has decided to take his own personal stand, Never Stop Dreaming gave pupils at Wyre Forest Special School the opportunity to work collaboratively with choreographer Dave Mckenna, photographer Kate Green and composer Andy Guthrie to produce a film which sought to reflect their own vision and experiences of the world around them.
“I thought the film was creative, emotive and a really accurate account of our pupils’ views and visions of the world. I think the families and the rest of the staff will be truly moved by the fabulous quality and creativity that has gone into it. Thank you so so much.”
