INSEMNOPEDY I: THE DREAM OF VICTOR F.

German Age Rating

Watch Teaser

After creating his monster, Victor Frankenstein goes to sleep, but he is tormented by bad dreams. At first he enjoys encountering his wife, Elizabeth, but then, between huge sheets of fabric and ghostly veiled figures, he is confronted with death, the depths of his soul, and horror. In this experimental film, we dream along with him. Gloomy, dramatic sounds enable us to fully engage with the dark imagery that the director has found for sleep.
