Andrea Morán, Fernando Vílchez

Spain 17 min Catalan premiere Fiction


A few months ago Andrea was hospitalized. Along with several friends Fernando began to send her voice messages from the outside reading paragraphs from books that could shorten that distance. Now, reversing the roles, both reconstruct those same words with the camera but under the same premise: a voice, a place in the city, a short reading. Shot in different places of Madrid, Yo siempre puedo dormir pero hoy no puedo explores the relationship between the written word and the spoken one, tracing a geographical and literary route through the multiple ways in which literature is presented.
