If you’re really wanting that summer feeling, you don’t have to wait until June to soak up warm, seemingly ending evenings. Director Michal Marczak will drop audiences into the feverish and dreamy “All These Sleepless Nights,” which will make you long for the season when the sun doesn’t seem to set.
Starring Krzysztof Baginski, Michael Huszcza, and Eva Lebuef, the film stretches across two summers in Warsaw, as friends and lovers fall in out of relationships. Here’s the official synopsis:
Many of us know the freedom of our twenties—unfettered by responsibilities or mortality, inventing ourselves in the rush of the moment. ALL THESE SLEEPLESS NIGHTS viscerally summons that feeling, chronicling life across two Warsaw summers when students Kris and Michal resolve to experience life to the limit.
After Kris breaks up with his long-time girlfriend, anything seems possible and Warsaw is his playground. Along with best friend Michal, handsome and wide-eyed, they roam the metropolis at night, floating from party to party, dancing until dawn in makeshift clubs and city squares. With only instinct and desire as their guides, big ideas intermingle with drugs and sex and one thing seamlessly gives way to another. However, when Kris falls for Michal’s ex-girlfriend, the indomitable and alluring Eva, the relationship between the two best friends falls apart. Determined to find his true self Kris navigates between his memories and future hopes soon realizing that his crusade to understand life has starting to overshadow living it. In a profound and compelling celebration of cinema, filmmaker Michal Marczak captures the very heart and soul of a generation awake enough to dance to their dreams.
“All These Sleepless Nights” opens in Los Angeles on April 7th, New York City on April 14th, and expands nationwide through April and May. Check out our exclusive clip from the film below.
