A film that balances the precision of a Swiss watch with the messiness of a restless mind, Wide Awake is filmmaker Alan Berliner’s uniquely personal tour through his life-long obsession with insomnia. Using both metaphor and candid first-person observations to illuminate how an obsessive mind that won’t shut down at night leaves him feeling “jet-lagged in his own time zone,” Berliner eventually reveals how he has turned this obsessive energy into a source of fuel and inspiration for his creative work.
