Watch Me When You Sleep

Mads Salbæk, Tessa Hoder, Denmark, 2019

85 min.Series (documentary)Youth films

Frederik and David are on stage playing their biggest concert ever at Roskilde Festival. Several hundreds of people are jumping up and down to the music forcing clouds of dust into the air. They are the band Fraads And the boys are standing in the middle of their youth and possibly in the middle of their musical breakthrough. The web series creates a crack into the boys’ chaotic and creative youth universe. Together they experience a summer that vanishes in the success of the band, and a winter that covers their lives and their city and gives Frederik a cold. In the settings of everyday life documentary and fiction merge together as the insomnia of Frederik takes him over and we dive into the winter’s state of loneliness, contemplation.
