Short Film Title : J’ai Pas Sommeil (I can’t Sleep)
“J’ai Pas Sommeil” was conceived in the Fall of 2005. A premature cold front, signifying an early winter, was upon Philadelphia as I entered my final semester of university. I had been away from home for over two years, and that season, an unmistakable absence lingered in the spaces of my life. It was a season of lost memories and last things. It was a season of displacements. “J’ai Pas Sommeil” was an attempt to encapsulate these dislocations: of geography and language, memory and desire. At its heart is a nocturnal restlessness, all at once seeking, all the while waiting. To be at rest in the perpetuity of motion. To find sleep. I hope this film has captured that experience faithfully. That experience of being far removed from all things familiar, including that of ones own memories. I hope you enjoy this attempt as much as I did attempting it.
