‘All These Sleepless Nights’ is an observational film about what is usually called youth. Director Michal Marczak erases the borders between feature movie and documentary work, showing the joy and abashment of the younger generation feeling freedom of their twenties, while life is disintegrating into a series of hedonistic episodes.
The story follows two roommates from Warsaw – Krzysztof and Michal, who perceive life as a carefree game. They hang out in bars all the time, tour the city nightlife and float from party to party. The circle is interrupted, when one day friendship seems to be broken by a non-random relationship. One of men falls in love with the other’s ex-girlfriend.
The movie has already conquered the critics of the Sundance festival. Michal Marczak paints a picture of Warsaw powered by a new generation bursting with energy, and stakes out its own cinematic terrain. For that the director was already named the new Terrence Malick.
The director Michal Marczak will present the film ‘All These Sleepless Nights’ in Moscow personally. The screening opens the Beat Film Festival.
Beat Film Festival is a documentary film festival about modern culture. This year's program includes 35 full-length films featuring David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Keith Blanchett, Leonard Cohen, and others. The festival will be held in Moscow from May 25 to June 4.
