THE DREAMER - Becoming Karen Blixen is the story of one woman’s struggle to find her place in life while freeing herself from the expectations of family and society. The series takes place in the 1930s and follows Karen Blixen’s return to her childhood home Denmark after many years in East Africa.
Penniless, sick, divorced and with her dreams in ruins, THE DREAMER – Becoming Karen Blixen shows Blixen’s journey from her lowest point to becoming a renowned writer. The series includes visualizations of her deepest thoughts and the magical universe of Blixen’s stories as well as flashbacks to her years in East Africa.
The Dreamer – Becoming Karen Blixen is based on an idea by Connie Nielsen and Karoline Leth. The series is inspired by Karen Blixen’s life and letters and with excerpts from her short story “The Dreamers”.
