My Sleepless Friends

Short Documentary Film, AT/IR 2023, analog - 16mm, 20 min, OmeU
Program: Kurzdokumentarfilm Programm 1

Conversations with sleepless friends, nocturnal gazes out the window at dark streets and weightless dream sequences: on restless 16mm film, they overlap to a somnambulistic narrative to talk about what keeps us awake at night. After all, insomnia has long been a collective problem, tightly interwoven with the fears and insecurities of our era.
