If a tree falls? Lightning illuminates a pine forest, horses wait in the darkness, an owl watches. Shapes shift in a woodland clearing, lit by the bluish hue of the moon. This could be an X-Files crime scene, or the forest that lives while Twin Peaks sleeps. Painterly visions of fantastic beauty capture a disorientating sense of the unreal.

With a few brushstrokes SLEEP HAS HER HOUSE transports you to a place both familiar and strange. You may remember it from childhood, or a nightmare - perhaps this memory belongs to someone who lived many, many years ago.

We cannot overstate how uniquely stirring this film is. Come sit in the dark with us. 

The single most momentous hour and a half in the dark for me this year, a tenebrous landscape film shapeshifting between reality and nightmare, cinema and dream.

Watching Sleep Has Her House, I realised how very long it had been since a new film both filled me with absolute wonder and satisfied my deepest craving for cinema itself.
