Another Dream – a hybrid animated documentary and VR game – brings the gripping, true
love story of an Egyptian lesbian couple to life. Faced with a post-revolution backlash
against the LGBTQ community, they escape Cairo to seek asylum and acceptance in
the Netherlands. An accompanying installation allows audiences to reflect on what they
have seen, heard and felt in VR.

Another Dream is the second installment of Queer in a Time of Forced Migration, an
animated transmedia series that follows the stories of LGBTQ refugees from Egypt,
Sudan and Saudi Arabia from the 2011 revolutions in the Middle East and North
Africa region.
