Sleep with Your Eyes Open

Nele Wohlatz

Brazil / Taiwan / Argentina / Germany
2024, 97'

A delicate and comic series of misunderstandings in which characters — Kai and her broken heart, Fu Ang and his ambitions beyond the umbrella shop, and Xiao Xin in a luxury tower living temporarily as an emigrant — meet and lose sight of each other. The film presents its narrative non-linearly, as if it were a collection of fragmented postcards, in which the characters’ compass points to Recife.
