The island of dreams

Had we to imagine a queer elderly home, what would it be like?
Can fantasy and imagination be a fruitful way to approach materiality?
In this movie, we are asking our close circle of friends for an imaginary description of a queer elderly home. Our idea was to engage with queer people in Athens, Greece, in order to reflect together upon aging fantasies through speculative fiction, by imagining, that is, living conditions and expectations while growing older in a collective housing project.
