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)
