The Quest For Sleep

Showings

O Cinema South Beach Sun, Feb 26 12:00 PM

Description

THE QUEST FOR SLEEP is a documentary film that follows real characters whose struggles with sleep threaten to unravel their waking lives.

 

The character of “Sleep” narrates, acting as a poetic and insightful foil to our cast, and leads the audience to experts who illuminate the science behind how we sleep and what keeps us awake. Powerful 3D animation takes us inside the brains of our characters as the stories playing out in their lives echo across their synapses.

 

The film features elite athletes like NBA star Andre Iguodala and Olympic runner Emma Coburn, as well as U.S. Army retired lieutenant-general Rick Lynch. Medical experts and key opinion leaders on how we sleep and what keeps us awake are also featured in the film, including sleep epidemiologist Dayna A. Johnson, psychiatrist and sleep medicine specialist Meeta Singh, and behavioral sleep medicine specialist Michael Grandner.
