In the arms of Morpheus

a tribute, by director Marc Schmidt (Matthew’s Laws, Grand Prix Visions de Reel), to the fantastic and uncontrollable elements of our existence.


It is impossible not to surrender to sleep. The world we ‘re all familiar with will sooner or later irrevocably pass into the intangible and fleeting domain of sleep. Asleep we are subjected to a fundamentally different way of experiencing things, which can’t be logically explained. Following the narcoleptic character of Dionne -and many other sleepers, – the film aims to deliver a cinematic experience analogous to the dream-laden inevitability of sleep, inviting an audience to travel through the unexplored realm of dreams.
