International premiere – In presence of Michael Higgins & Oli Ryan (composer)
At the dawn of the cinema age, isolated in his country house, Dr. Epstein conducts various scientific experiments on his adopted children. But the arrival of vagrants interrupts the daily routine, a disturbing figure appears, normality is disrupted and madness lurks… Captured on scraps of outdated 35mm film using a Soviet-era camera from the 70s, “Autumnal Sleeps” has the texture of a waking dream, impalpable and elusive, from which one emerges shivering, with the satisfying sensation of having lived a unique experience.
