sleep furiously

Film: Gideon Koppel, Sleep Furiously, 2007, UK

The title comes from Chomsky’s nonsense sentence: “Colourless green ideas sleep furously.”

An interview with the film maker, Gideon Koppel, describing the process of making a film in a remote Welsh farming community where he had been brought up. His film-making style developed as did the project itself through getting the work funded. It is an elegy, with long and careful glances mindful of time and light, with thoughtful use of music:
