In Focus: Betzy Bromberg 4

Voluptuous Sleep

Betzy Bromberg | 2011 | USA | 95’ | 16mm | sound 

“Betzy Bromberg’s Voluptuous Sleep is a mesmerising two-part 16mm meditation on the nuances of light, sound and feeling as evoked through the poetic artifices of cinema. Bromberg’s close-up lens becomes a tool of infinite discovery that reveals as much about our bodily sensations as it does the natural world. Combined with intricate and perfectly matched soundtracks, Voluptuous Sleep is a rapturous, re-centring antidote to the fragmentation of modern life and offers a new experience of cinematic time and memory. It is also an emotional tour de force.” (Steve Anker)
