Long Time No Sleep
As if it were following a coded route, a backpack is passed on from hand to hand among runners, bus passengers, bikers and motorists, until it accidentally falls in the inattentive hands of an insomniac, a gray man who seems out of time and out of place and who, without even knowing why, decides to run away with the bounty. Loaded with the absurdity of dreams, the film takes us through a strange universe in which love is communicated only in rhyme and fate seems laid out by tarot cards, rock crystals and pages from a transport guide. Just as the insomniac finds, in the backpack, a vehicle to remain awake as well as a reason to believe, the film pushes us, in a rush, through a never ending, iconic Buenos Aires City in which clumsy chases and schemes are the perfect excuse to make us hold on to an endless narrative.
Agustín Godoy was born in Buenos Aires in 1987. He studied film at the Universidad del Cine and did a post-graduate screenwriting course at the University of London’s Goldsmiths Institute. He is a founding member of independent production company Gentil, and published two YA novels. Long Time No Sleep is his first feature.
