Dreaming of Peggy Lee


Two children escape their oppressive care home to sneak into a 1940’s jazz club in London.


Sometimes the barrier is the bridge to your dream.



Director’s statement:

Dreaming of Peggy Lee is a musical film that can be enjoyed by children and adults in equal measure.

The story follows Belinda, a young girl struggling to accept who she is, putting the theme of identity at the core of this film.

Partly a silent film, Dreaming of Peggy Lee is also a celebration of jazz to accompany what is a fairytale journey from the oppressive care home to the wonderment that is the sight and sound of the 1940’s.

True to the tagline of the film, ‘sometimes the barrier is the bridge to your dream’ what becomes clear is that it’s not so much what you achieve that is commendable but what you have to overcome in order to achieve.

Dim the lights and turn up your speakers and let Dreaming of Peggy Lee transport you from the present day back to a golden age that will leave you inspired and enthralled.
