Vincenzo Lodigiani’s Mon Rêve explores the theme of insomnia, and how sleep becomes an obsession to those deprived of it:
“There is a kind of cult in the world, made of men and women of all social backgrounds, of all ages, races and religions. It’s the sect of the sleepless. I am part of it. The men who do not belong to the sect sometimes say to those who are part of: ‘if you can not sleep you can still read, watch TV, study or do anything else’. This kind of tips deeply bother components of the sect of insomniacs. The reason is very simple: those who suffer from insomnia has only one obsession: to fall asleep.
Helped by references to some of the greatest masters of surrealism, and starring Frédéric Chopin’s nocturne for this new short, I tried to show the beauty and the purity of dreams, and the bizarre behavior of our images and thoughts flow, into them.”
