INSOMNIA deals with different levels of reality as well as the phenomenal and psychological processes associated with the night and the motif of sleep. The films portray notions of isolation and solitude, restlessness, subculture and the occult, as they question the twilight states of in-betweenness – the interstice between logic and the delusion.
A selection of films will be streamed here on our website during the month of August:

Mit Borrás film „Adaptasi Cycle - Arcyria“ presents the futuristic fiction of M: a human with a new pro-technologic body, that lives an alternative present, connecting with her own body and nature in the synthetic realms of a modern cave, a wellness clinic and a spa.
Like reveries and simulations of organic animals, two drones fly throughout the spa silently. Except the company of a white owl, M lives in isolation in this new cave and cultivates her body and mind daily in a methodical and ceremonial way. She trains virtuously, embodying accelerationistic fantasies that in a sense resemble a new occultism. M hydrates her body and meditates during her push-ups and stretches, mentally escaping towards extinct jungles, ruins, disappeared glaciers, waterfalls and spaces with interesting biodiversity and fertile lands.
In a dream-like manner, the film oscillates between states physical action and mental submersion.
Exemplifying the vision of a new state of human being, in the dawn of modern society’s fantasy of its future existence, the film negotiates how modern society has elevated digitalism, technology and progress into the paradigm of evolution.
