Details

A film for these frenetic times, Max Richter’s Sleep is a meditative respite from the rush and chaos of the modern world, studying the universal experience of sleep that unites us all. The film follows acclaimed composer and musician Max Richter (whose film credits include Shutter Island, Mary Queen of Scots and Ad Astra), and his creative partner, artist and BAFTA-winning filmmaker Yulia Mahr, as they navigate an ambitious performance of his celebrated eight-hour opus Sleep at an open-air concert in Los Angeles. 

Mahr’s personal archive is weaved with performance footage from Berlin, Sydney, and Paris to create a rich portrait of a shared artistic process, along with contributions that illuminate both the science and story behind the work.
