    • Synopsis
    • Dreamcatcher takes us into a hidden world through the eyes of one of its survivors; Brenda Myers-Powell. A former teenage prostitute with a drug habit, Brenda, defied the odds to become a powerful advocate for change in her community. With unprecedented access, multi award winning director, Kim Longinotto paints a vivid portrait of a community struggling to come to terms with some of its most painful truths and of the extraordinary woman who uses her past to inspire others to survive. With warmth and humour, Brenda gives hope to those who have none.
