Sleep Dealer


This screening has been canceled. 

Winner of two prizes at the Sundance Film Festival and the 2008 Independent Spirit Award for Best First Feature, the prescient and socially committed sci-fi film Sleep Dealer takes place in a near future of airtight international borders and militarized corporate warriors. When a young Mexican leaves his dying farm to become a “node worker” in the city—one of an underground class of laborers who plug their nervous systems into a global computer network—he stumbles across a sinister transmission that will pave the way for the cities of the future. (90 mins., 35mm)
