    Naomi Kawase directs a short documentary, 40 minutes long about her absent father.

    If someone I didn't know came up to me and suddenly asked me to watch their home movies, I might awkwardly walk away from them, mostly because I'd only watch those from someone I knew.

    Sleep Has Her House

    Sleep has her house is a 90 minute experimental film directed by Scott Barely, it is a non-narrative film featuring no actors or dialogue.

    I confess, high-experimental cinema is an area of film I have left tragically unexplored, this was also my first Barely outing.
    While Fricke and Reggio are less immersive, the prior feels like he has more to say and you have more fun interpretating the images and ordering them and are well...generally brighter, more vibrant .
