Manifestly inspired by the achievements of surrealists, the film is a recording of a private investigation in which the director is looking for the causes of a mysterious condition – insomnia. In a brilliant form, it is a beautiful metaphor on the path between reality and a dream, on what is a product of science and what is a sensation. What is a dream and what role does it play? Is there any inter-species dreaming community? In his intimate visual diary, Boris Van der Avoort records the states of mind and body suspended between light and darkness.
