This animated and live-action 'music video' style film shows a dream sequence of a young learning disabled woman called Debbie. Debbie is trapped in her house by her wicked aunt. The only way she can get out of the house is in her dreams. The film shows dream people guiding her and helping her to run away. The music is provided by Beat Express, a learning disabled rock group also supported by Carousel.
The film was made by Carousel and shown as part of “Debbie Rock Angel,” a multi-media performance show that premiered in Brighton, UK in November 2006, prior to a short tour across the South East. The show was the first rock opera written, directed and performed by learning disabled musicians, performers, film-makers and DJs. "Debbie Dreams" won the "Best Performance Award, Under 10 minutes" at the 2008 Picture This Film Festival. The film was also made as part of the Oska Bright Film Festival outreach programme (www.oskabright.co.uk), the only award winning international short film festival managed and delivered by learning disabled film-makers.
