I think everybody has their own natural state of dance they are in…Dance is one of the devices that tells the story…It’s all about finding the natural rhythm of your body, you kind of discover yourself. – Director Michał Marczak.

In a film that blurs the line between fiction and documentary, All These Sleepless Nights captures protagonists Christopher and Michal’s own natural state of dance as they navigate their way through the party scene in Warsaw, Poland. Showing us all the crazy splendour of youth, Michal Marczak creates an indelible portrait of friendship and romance. A new era is coming, and Warsaw stands uncomfortably at its edge. Christopher and Michal restlessly roam their city’s streets in search of living forever inside the beautiful moment. Never content with answers, they push each experience to its breaking point, testing what it might mean to be truly awake in a world that seems satisfied to be asleep. Polish (with English subtitles).

Michal Marczak's unclassifiable wonder uses the raw material of real life to create a rich story of sex, memory, and becoming - David Ehrlich, IndieWire
