Directed by Sara Driver | 1986

With Suzanne Fletcher, Ann Magnuson, Dexter Lee

A No Wave classic from the 80s Manhattan demimonde, Sara Driver’s trancelike puzzle film is a surrealist’s delight in which a woman translating an ancient Chinese scroll finds that the manuscript exerts a strange influence over her life. Strikingly shot by Jim Jarmusch, Sleepwalk “belongs on its own dreamy wavelength, offering its chiseled beauty, delicate textures, and disquieting wit to any spectator game enough to climb inside” (Jonathan Rosenbaum).

A blast of lo-fi cool from the 80s underground, the debut feature from Allison Anders is an offbeat road movie that travels from LA to Mexico during the waning days of the West Coast punk scene.
