Autour du sommeil
A film by Virgile Novarina
(12 min. / 2005)

A brief summary of sleeping life, for use by those who are awake. Constructed like an animal documentary on the subject of sleepers, this film tells the story of a single day, from morning to night. The only characters in the film are sleepers and yawners who were filmed on mass transit, in public spaces and in private space.
