About Sleep Dealer

Year Released:
Action/Adventure, Science Fiction
Described as “Exuberantly entertaining — a dystopian fable of globalization disguised as a science-fiction adventure,” Sleep Dealer is set in a militarized world in the near future, where technology joins experiences and minds. In this nightmare world three strangers try to break the technological barriers surrounding them. Visually stunning, ambitious, and featuring strong social commentary, the film won the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award and Alfred P. Sloan Prize at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival.
