Synopsis : Night wandering in a labyrinthine city. Layout of roads, avenues, deserted streets, hostile architectures where the homeless, shadows of flesh and blood, lost in the power of the city, silently die. The film carries us away in the madness race of the city, at night, submerged by the insomniac, alienating waves of the media, through which the human voice tries, like a distant echo, an obstinate wake up call.

Technique : Shots and editing in DV. Interventions work the most simply possible in numerical.

To know more : Asleep was presented at the l’UNESCO for a screenig about intolerance and was officialy selected by the 24th FESTIVAL TOUS COURTS D’AIX-EN-PROVENCE (international competition).
