Early in the summer, a week before they left school and went their separate ways, the band Dream Diver invites a film crew in to document their first - and last - live performance. The band consists of six boys who have known each other for 10 years at a school in Rødovre for children with special needs. Guided by their teachers the boys found their sound, and in Dream Diver, they invite you into their space-sounding universe filled with synthetic bird whistles and abstract dream lyrics.

With a camera in hand since childhood, Jonas Bang’s lifelong focus on the aesthetic got off to the earliest of starts. Today, the young Danish director has carried his fascination with image into a flourishing career in commercials, campaigns and music videos (Iceage, Mø, Soleima and others). Jonas Bang’s style is playful, often with a raw and poetic touch, and marked out by his incredible eye for details. His 2021 film for Danish fashion label Gestuz, 'The Journey', was nominated for a number of that year's art direction and production design awards, including wins at both the Creative Circle and True Awards. Dream Diver is Bang's debut as an autonomous filmmaker.
