#WhatDreamsAreMadeof is a gritty biographical account of R.City’s trek from island artists to becoming one of the most in-demand songwriting duos in the world for artists like Beyonce’, Miley Cyrus, Usher and many more, to their own platinum single and album release.
The documentary tells the story of two brothers who fought for their deferred dream, in the face of adversity and numerous failures. R. City’s dream has allowed them to impact others in a way that inspires the human spirit and celebrates hope. Atlanta-based filmmaker Tory Edwards jumped at the chance to document his longtime friends’ story as he’d been a part of their support system long before the platinum single featuring Adam Levine or even the numerous hits Timothy and Theron wrote for other A-list stars.
“I’ve known the guys for about 10 years, before any of the fame or any of the commercial success. I think people will relate to this piece regardless of their background, race, etc. because it’s a story of perseverance. Stories like this resonate with everyone, because we can all relate to that in some way,” says director Tory Edwards.
He believes what makes R. City special is their unique ability to withstand numerous failures and disappointments, never stopping to allow bitterness or discouragement to set in.
“Everyone who we interviewed about the group spoke about their persistence and hard work and their character. Never once did they show any resentment or anger towards anything that was thrown into their path. It speaks to their character and who they are as people,” Edwards says.
Edwards is excited to be taking this project to the 2016 Sundance Film Festival as he feels it will offer a fresh perspective from many of the other films slated for the festival. “Last year I told myself I wasn’t going to miss another Sundance, but I had no idea I would be presenting a film this year, ” he explains.
