DREAMS FOR THE LIVING is a collection of animation by independent animation collaborative unit, Opertura (Aya Yamasaki and Jason Brown).
Caught up in the precariousness of survival and self-preservation, homeless queer and trans youth of color hang out at Christopher Street Pier, forging their own chosen family. With intimate, immersive access to the hazardous life of its vulnerable but fearless protagonists, director Elegance Bratton’s still-hopeful portrait exposes a raw side of New York City many often choose to ignore.
