Trailer of the Day: I Can’t Sleep

I Can't Sleep

Claire Denis weaves the true story of Thierry Paulin—a black, gay transvestite who, with his lover, killed at least 20 “little old ladies” in Paris during the 1980s—into a portrait of his extended family from Martinique and their encounter with a plucky young Lithuanian actress. “There are no heroes in I CAN’T SLEEP, but the city fights its own demons, ‘grannies’ take up martial arts to defend themselves, and those with any shred of humanity reach out to others, often in vain. Denis understands that people sin but knows that they also regret. The title may suggest that even the gravest offenders lose sleep over their transgressions.”—Indiewire (110 mins.)

I CAN’T SLEEP screens on Saturday, May  4 at 6:15p.m. and Friday, May 10 at 9:15p.m. in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).  The film is being presented as part of our Claire Denis retrospective, THE LYRICAL SPACE OF CLAIRE DENIS.
