Quand ils dorment

When They Sleep
Directed by: 

A Certificate for a film in the International Children's and Youth Film Competition in connection with a recommendation for Matthias Film and the Katholisches Filmwerk to buy the film for their catalogues the Jury awards to WHEN THEY SLEEP (Quand ils dorment).

8-year-old Sara loves her grandfather. When he dies unexpectedly, she looks for a way to say goodbye despite religious conventions. The film addresses a universal theme in a culture foreign to us. Its direct camera and unpretentious narrative style make it convincing. A film that moves both children and adults.
