A Journal of Insomnia

Wednesday, 30 October 2013, 20:00-21:30
Passage Kinos/Wintergarten

Interactive Documentary, Canada 2013

What is it, what keeps us up at night? The interactive documentary looks into this question inviting users to immerse in the universe of insomnia - a phenomenon that is linked to stress and anxiety and affects one in three people in our contemporary society.Moving beyond the narrative boundaries of the documentary form, "A Journal of Insomnia" collects personal stories of insomnia via video, text and drawings and creates a collaborative experience of affected people from across the world. The revealing testimony of four insomniacs in particular offers an intimate experience of a distressing condition that is usually experienced in solitude.
