Ibrahim and the Dreamer

Based on stories collected from the people of Northern Ghana, Ibrahim and the Dreamer is a film about the power of stories to change lives, and how people in these remote, hard-to-reach parts of the world learn through story-based oral communication styles.

When Ibrahim, a villager in Northern Ghana, and his brother, Osman, have a falling out, it seems that nothing can reconcile them and bring their family back together. However, on his way to meet Osman to extract his revenge, Ibrahim meets a strange man, Wumbei, that he’s seen only in his dreams. Late that night, around the campfire, Wumbei tells Ibrahim the story of another man, Joseph, who had dreams and was shunned by his brothers. Ibrahim is fascinated by the compassion that Joseph was able to show, but is unsure if he’s able to show the same mercy.

Ibrahim and the Dreamer is a story that explores the power of Bible stories in a place like the Islamic Sahel of West Africa, and shows how storytelling can change hearts, minds, and lives.
