Mediacritica – Sleep Awake – review

Another great review for Sleep Awake, this time in Italy. “Ogni lingua ha un suo silenzio” (Elias Canetti) “Il silenzio è il linguaggio di tutte le forti passioni, dell’amore (anche nei momenti dolci), dell’ira, della meraviglia, del timore” (Giacomo Leopardi, Pensieri). Tale considerazione sembra permeare l’intera essenza di Sleep Awake, opera prima e indipendente del cineasta rumeno Andrei Stefanescu. È un’atmosfera dal forte sapore pinteriano a scandire l’incontro tra i due giovani protagonisti, Irina e Ilie, i quali si scrutano intensamente al parco, intavolano un fugace dialogo e decidono di “consumare” il loro primo ed unico rapporto sessuale fino all’inaspettato epilogo che segnerà la vita di entrambi. Ed è un interminabile silenzio tra un dialogo e l’altro a metaforizzare il turbamento interiore della “coppia per un giorno” e a cadenzare l’espressività e gestualità dei due giovani. Un vero e proprio cinéma du corps, dunque, quello proposto da Stefanescu, concettuale e sensoriale allo stesso tempo. Onirico e viscerale, Sleep Awake si avvale di uno stile strettamente amatoriale (evidente è l’utilizzo della camera a mano per buona parte delle riprese) e documentaristico, con ampio spazio all’improvvisazione recitativa e a brevi ed incisivi monologhi. Caratteristica dell’opera prima di Stefanescu è, inoltre, una dilatazione e scansione dei tempi narrativi secondo una logica naturale più che filmica. A tal proposito, si pensi alla passeggiata dei due amanti verso casa di lui prima dell’atto sessuale – il tutto cronometrato nei minimi dettagli e con un dosaggio centellinato del montaggio. A fare da sfondo è un utilizzo minimale della colonna sonora, presente in sole due scene chiave del film e intervallata dal suono diegetico di un cellulare che squilla. Attorno al vuoto esistenziale dei due giovani si dipana la desolazione di una Bucarest indifferente e spettrale, quasi ad omaggiare l’immagine straniante della periferia (more…)

One nation under CCTV

Sabina a gasit un articol in slovena pe tumblr despre filmul Romanesc in care este pomenit si Dormi trezeste-te, cu un mic google translator iata ce a iesit: "Ultra-independent film Sleep Awake (year 2012, directed by Andrei Stefanescu) is a classic example of contemporary Romanian cinema. Contemplative and monotonous in the best sense of the word. As is sometimes monotonous and routine life itself. Sometimes it seems that a man needs a boost, self-confidence, certainty and confirmation. Even a woman in the very introduction to this obscure film confesses his story. Long, nearly 15-minute-long continuous scene sets the beginnings of this piece of celluloid. Confirm speculation about seeking pleasure and challenge in life. Untitled half-naked woman is lying in bed and you ask questions. As in the confessional, the story comes from the camera and the viewer. He hates silence. I want it pulled, feels his skin and saliva that drips into her mouth, penetration, hard buttocks. The only goal in life is to fulfill her in the arms of another. Without pretensions, and sexual concerns. Skorajda raw, flexible in their sexual perversion. Ta monologue is full of questioning, denial and outright hatred. As if a man spits in the face, as it ignores own actions and body. The entire film is made up of long, meditative scene, carrying the story, which is actually not at all. Slow cinema, realized in motionless silence, perceived views and gentle touch. Natural light from human skin makes Kingdom senses, which creates feminine beauty, even when reluctantly listen to her words and wonder at the fact that someone who has been in your life a bed of roses, so disdainful look at the world and people (more…)

Sleeping Awake While Reading the World

a beautiful interview with our producer Anda, about the film and our future projects

 http://bucharest-tips.com/guide/sleeping-awake-while-reading-the-world-an-interview-with-a-romanian-independent-movie-producer/
An Interview with a Romanian Independent Movie Producer ”Sleep Awake” has hunted the virtual space since its completion, in 2012. Sensorial, visceral disturbing as ghosts usually are. They said it was a movie about the living silence around us. About the fight between our fears and desires. Some attended the screenings in a few artsy bars/clubs in Bucharest. Some loved it. Some hated it. Nobody left without a reaction. Anda, 24, the film’s producer, says that there is no other hard essence of the film than the disclosure of the most intimate feelings of each observer. Excitement, disorder, trouble, confusion, unrest. Maybe more. Anda and Andrei, producer and director, completed Sleep Awake, a Romanian independent movie and they already have plans for new films: “Linear A”, telling the story of an unusual couple, dealing with poverty and trying to make noise music as a band and “Thraum”, a more complex project, needing a budget, the story of a child that metamorphoses, as he got growing a pair of spectacular butterfly wings. Sleep Awake is available for watching online or download here or you can order a hard copy here. We met Anda on a cold Sunday morning in the middle of the deserted battlefield of the Old Centre and soon shared common feelings about Bucharest, its people and places, which made everything much easier. Short-haired, vivid eyes, straightforward and natural, Anda is somehow representative (she might not agree:) for the new generation of people doing things out of passion and conviction, having something to say to the world without being driven by the financial rewards (which are good, when not a purpose.) She thinks independent, acts independent and has a weakness for independent films. What Qualia Films means? Qualia Films is a concept/film production house, without a legal statute, dealing with films about marginal groups with the intention of exploring things that are out of reach or that we are usually scared of. It started with the core team Andrei, me, Sorin Nainer and the assistant director, Sabina. My first project with Andrei (a test drive also, that’s how we’ve met) was a noise-dance videoperformance in the “jungle” at Moara lui Assan, called MENO. (more…)
