Dreaming Murakami

At work in the world of thoughts and dreams with Haruki Murakami's Danish translator Mette Holm, where every word carries within it an entire world.

Mette Holm has translated Haruki Murakami's books to Danish for years. But translating is a delicate practice, not least when your source language is Japanese – and when your author writes masterpieces that always balance on the razor-thin line between the real and the possible. 'Dreaming Murakami' follows Holm's work on translating Murakami's debut 'Hear the Wind Sing'. A work that takes her to Tokyo and to conversations with colleagues about the wealth of meanings in the Japanese language. And to a sensual and poetic world, where daydreams and fabled animals crawl out from between the lines and into reality before our eyes. The filmmaker Nitesh Anjaan does not settle for observing Mette Holm at work. In Murakami's spirit, the two worlds – the one of literature and that of reality – are woven together into an artistic symbiosis, where an enormous frog (a universal symbol of good fortune) looks on from the sidelines. An evocative film about the passion for literature, and about the overlooked work of making it available across languages.
