Preceded by the short film The Beekeeper.

When her mother is hospitalized after a car crash, eight-year-old Lily goes to live with her aunt and grandmother, who suffers from dementia. Lily’s grandmother begins to tell her a fairytale to pass the time, but when the lines between reality and fantasy begin to blur, Lily ventures into the fairytale to find a way to save her mother. Combining fantasy elements with a human story of grief and acceptance, The Machinery of Dreams is a sweeping portrayal of the bonds that tie a family together. Discussion with director Eric Hurt and actor Cora Metzfield, moderated by producer Jack Steinberg
