What happens when you combine an abandoned mental hospital, an experiment with insomnia, and group actors? You get director Gustavo Hernández’s You Shall Not Sleep.
Starring Natalia de Molina, Eva De Domicici, Jaun Manuuel Guilera, Susana Hornos, Miguel Angel Maciel, Germán Palacios, and Belén Rueda, the film was penned by Juma Fodde.
Set in an abandoned psychiatric hospital, the film follows a theatre group experiments with insomnia for the preparation of a stage play. With the passage of days without sleep, they reach new thresholds of perception that expose them to the secrets of the place and the energies that inhabit it. When Bianca, a young, promising actress, joins the cast, competing for the lead role, she must survive not only the intensity of the work and her cast mates but the unknown force that is pulling them towards a tragic outcome.
You Will Not Sleep is set to be released later this year. Check out the new trailer.
