The Insomnia of a Serial Dreamer
Mohamed Soueid has always had a knack for filming his friends and his loved ones. He films them for years, accumulating hours and hours of footage. We see them younger and older. They are not subjects in his films; they are its fabric. Edited from rushes gathered over a decade, INSOMNIA OF A SERIAL DREAMER is Soueid’s latest adventure in which friendship takes form in speech and language as we watch his friends talk him into sleeping. To deal with his insomnia, Mohamed Soueid meets various people and close friends to ask them to tell him stories that could help him get a good night’s sleep. After filming for 15 years, the collected rushes have become a film, a series of dreams that have come true and haunted the filmmaker until today. (NO)
