Sul­tana’s Dream

Young Inés aspires to become a direc­tor of ani­mat­ed films, but she is unable to find nei­ther an inspir­ing sto­ry nor deep per­son­al moti­va­tions. One day, she dis­cov­ers Sultana’s Dream” by the Ben­gali writer Rokeya Hos­sein (Pairabond, Bangladesh 1880 — Kolkata 1932). Pub­lished in Madras in 1905, the book describes Lady­land: a utopi­an coun­try where women are sci­en­tists and gov­ern the state while men live in seg­re­ga­tion, igno­rant and afraid. Seduced by the sto­ry, Inés, gifts her­self a trip to India behind the traces of Rokeya. It is an ini­tia­to­ry adven­ture as a young woman and future author.
