LOSING SLEEP presents interview footage of a self-confessed computer hacker who is struggling with chronic insomnia. His work on the computer has become such an all-encompassing cyber-world, that for him returning to the grounded physical world is a frightening endeavour. ‘Giving in’ to sleep seems like a violent surrender. Yet only by submitting to simple physical acts, such as a long, deliberate walk late at night, can he find any rest.
