2008. Great Britain. Directed by Gideon Koppel. Sleep Furiously is set in a small farming community in mid Wales, a place where Koppel's parents—both refugees—found a home. Influenced by his conversations with the writer Peter Handke, the filmmaker leads us on a poetic and profound journey into a world of endings and beginnings—a world of stuffed owls, sheep, and fire—all to a soundtrack by the cult electronic musician Aphex Twin. 94 min.
