Canned Dreams

CANNED DREAMS is a lyrical journey across the world. It builds a portrait of ordinary workers, through their own personal stories. All this happens in a frame of following a route of one canned food product, which starts its journey from other side of the world and travels all across Europe. Behind this product are uncountable pairs of hands and their stories.
