A Film by Felix Nelson Elsen

'I Dream In Colour' is an experimental documentary exploring blind people's perception. Six people with six different sight conditions lead the viewer through an audiovisual journey, intertwining three-dimensional soundscapes with innovative imagery.

Quote from http://berliner-filmfestivals.de/2012/01/festivalbericht-british-shorts-2012/3:
"Fast schon experimentell mutet schließlich der Beitrag “I Dream In Colour” (Felix Elsen) an, in welchem blinde Menschen ihre Sicht auf die Welt artikulieren. Ästhetisch setzt er sich deshalb von den anderen Filmen ab, weil “I Dream In Colour” über weite Strecken auch bildinszenatorisch mit der Sichtweise der Blinden operiert, sodass – zugegeben – eine komplett schwarze Leinwand plötzlich doch ziemlich beklemmende Gefühle auslösen kann."

Quote from http://www.exposuresfestival.co.uk/news/review-competition-screening-6:
"...I would like to give special praise to I Dream in Colour directed by Felix Elsen. We see the world through the eyes of six people with various visual impairments and through ‘their eyes’ gain a greater understanding of blindness and how it affects people in different ways."
