Swiss Premiere Documentary
Voglio Dormire con Te (I Wanna Sleep with You) begins four months from the day I decided to leave my partner. For the first time, however, the freedom I reclaimed did not bring relief but rather insomnia; a constant wakefulness in which the awareness of what I thought I would find without him dissolved. What kept me awake was not that I missed him, but rather, I began to think about all the relationships I had had until then.
I reflected upon the story of Babylon and started to film the lives and relationships of couples I knew well in the hopes of retracing the symptoms I had felt in the need for freedom that led me to choose being on my own over a relationship. The film took shape over time and became a journey in search of the solutions each one of us implements to overcome solitude. (Mattia Colombo)
