  • Weronika is a dedicated and talented young ballet dancer in Poland. Over the period of six years, the documentary follows her journey from the renowned Warsaw Ballet School to the greatest stages of the world. Since she was 10 years old, ballet has been her entire life, always striving for excellence. Her path is full of challenges and it turns out that talent, dedication and hard work are not always a guarantee to success. Sometimes one bad moment wipes out all the plans. However, Weronika isn't one to give up easily.

    Weronika‘s private life, loneliness and exhaustion remain in the background, brushed aside, until her life is changed just two days before an important performance at the Berlin Opera. SOMETIMES I DREAM I‘M FLYING is a poetic film about the magic of dreams and hopes. Combining dream-like elements, an elaborated musical composition and documentary storytelling, the film takes an emotional approach to explore the relentlessness and loneliness in the life of an artist.
