Around Sleep is built like a wildlife documentary focused on sleepers. It tells the story of a day, from morning to night. The only characters are sleepers and yawners who were filmed in public transports or places as well as in private  surroundings.

With: Sarane Alexandrian, Ludovic Boulard le Fur, Thomas Duval, Juliette Ferrer, Roséliane Goldstein, Lou Brice Léonard, LBW, David, Raphaël, Romain, and Virgile Novarina,  Julien Pace, Marie-Sol Parant, Octave and Léonard Novarina-Parant,  Jonathan Rubin, Didier Seban, Mr. Windels.

    Piano: «Sounds of the Heart», The Flight, by Marie-Sol Parant.


    Marie-Sol Parant has never learnt to play the piano; she does not know music theory or even the names of the notes on the keyboard and prefers to play on out of tune pianos. Alone, she has reinvented her relationship to the instrument, with her own markers on the keyboard and on her scores that have neither notes nor staves but, instead, are coded and coloured patterns of the spaces in which her music takes us.

     After studying Mathematics and Physics, Virgile Novarina (born in 1976) devoted himself to the artistic exploration of his own sleep through writings and drawings, and the sleep of others through photographs and videos. He has published six books of "Ecrits et dessins de nuit" (Night’s Writings and Drawings) and has exhibited his work in France, Germany, Portugal and the United States. Since 2006 the very act of sleeping has become an integral part of his work, through the “En Somme” (French language pun, meaning "all in all" or "sleep in progress") series of performances, during which he sleeps publicly in shop windows, galleries or museums.


    In 2002 Virgile Novarina befriended Jean-Olivier Hucleux, whom he regularly filmed from 2005 to 2009. "Jean Olivier Hucleux, du travail à l'oeuvre" (from the work to the artwork) is his first documentary.
