Metadata:

In Sara Driver’s poetically oddball and comic fantasy, a New York typesetter— whose job is to translate Chinese fairytales—is propelled with her son and roommate into a surreal and mysterious existence. The film has been compared to Jacques Rivette’s Duelle for its bold experimental breaks from the tropes of fantasy. Upon release, the New York Times published, “Sara Driver’s lyrical, witty Sleepwalk has the illogical sense of a dream, backed by the texture of everyday life. In her first feature, Driver blithely absorbs influences—from chiaroscuro to Surrealism to performance art—and spins them into her own vibrant, original style.” Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive.
