Kommentar zum Film:

Wieso schnarcht ein Mensch? Diese unnütze ressourcenverschleudernde Tätigkeit bildet die zentralen  Rolle des Filmes. Das Schnarchen wird im Film als reiner Soundtrack verwendet.


Originalaufnahmen aus drei Nächten eines wild träumenden Menschen,

war das Rohmaterial für den Ton. Der Sounddesigner Peter Bräker widmete sich Tagelang dem Kratzen, Schleifen und Pfeifen des Schnarchens,  um daraus einen rhythmischen und dramaturgischen Soundteppich für SCHLAF herzustellen.


Wohlbekannte, aufwühlende und irritierende Töne beleben eine uns ebenfalls bekannte Geschichte mit ebenso irritierenden Bildern.

Der Film irritiert und macht uns lachen. Bevor er richtig angefangen hat, hört er schon wieder auf. Mit der Erleichterung vermischt sich das Begehren nach mehr.

Synopsis

download


Full breath ahead into the final sleep.

A lullaby with closed eyes for a silent decline.


Schlaf


Mit Volldampf auf Kurs zur endgültigen Nachtruhe.

Ein Wiegenlied für einen Untergang in aller Stille.


Sommeil


Plein cap à pleins poumons et à toute vapeur

sur l'ultime repos. Une berceuse les yeux fermés

pour sombrer en toute quiétude.


Sonno

A pieni polmoni e a tutto gas verso l’eterno riposo.

Una ninna nanna a occhi chiusi per un quieto trapasso.


Directors statement

Pure snoring sound included/The best records of three nights non stop snoring, collected and presented for your edification.
