Nominated in Sight & Sound 2017 Film Poll and Village Voice 2017 Film Poll for Best film, Best first feature, and Best director, “Sleep Has Her House” is Scott Barley’s much praised feature opus. Through long static takes, the film develops a contemplative, hypnotic experience, akin to paintings that move, mixing live action and still photography (shot on iPhone) and hand-drawn images. In a world seemingly devoid of human beings and inhabited by only a select few animals, an undefined presence manifests, embodied as the wind. It passes through the valley, lake, and the woods, leaving only mysterious deaths in its wake. As the night creeps in, the supernatural forces at work transcend into the natural, with apocalyptic consequences. TRT 90min.
