London-based distributor Dogwoof and music films specialist Eagle Rock have partnered on international sales for the Natalie Johns-directed “Max Richter’s Sleep.”
The documentary follows the groundbreaking British-born German composer — who rose to prominence with the Golden Globe-winning “Waltz With Bashir” and whose credits include “Ad Astra” and “Shutter Island” — as he created his landmark eight-hour album, “Sleep.”
Centered on Richter’s open-air concert in Los Angeles, as well as footage from Berlin, Sydney, and Paris, the film examines his life and process and includes personal reflections from the composer, as well as a visual archive from his long-term creative partner, the BAFTA-winning filmmaker Yulia Mahr, the co-architect of “Sleep.”
