UN AMOUR RÊVÉ / A Dreamed Love

UN AMOUR RÊVÉ / A Dreamed Love

As a child, Arthur is fascinated by the idyllic love story between his grandparents, a beautiful Congolese woman married to a Belgian settler. But shortly after his grandmother’s death, the young director uncovers some family records which shatter his childhood memories. These records form the starting point for an exploration into the colonial heritage of a mixed-race family, whose sufferings had been cloaked in silence.

Born in 1987 in Namur, Belgium, Arthur Gillet lives and works in Brussels. After growing up at the stage academy, he first encountered the world of the silver screen at the Cours Florent in Paris. It was director Juan Pittaluga who introduced him to editing and production. He then studied for two years at IAD, where his interest led him to documentary films.
