Hong Kong Arts Centre Open House & Late Night Series 2022
We sleep, we dream. Novel journeys await us in our sleep. Some of them could be fantastical, some of them could be realistic. No matter what kind of dream it is, we could experience them – we could walk, we could talk. After waking up, we no longer stay in the same scenario but in a different, more dimensional world called reality. However, we still walk, we still talk. This year, the Hong Kong Arts Centre’s Open House & Late Night Series presents a multi-disciplinary experience “Sleep Walk; Sleep Talk” . We welcome two different cinematic journeys in sleep - CLEO, if I could turn back time, and SLEEP, it turns out the nightmares.

The imaginative Cleo (Marleen Lohse) feels a very special kind of affinity for her home town of Berlin. But her deepest desire is to be able to turn back time – with the aid of a magic clock which was stolen during a robbery in the 1920s and has been missing ever since. She hopes that the clock might help her undo the death of her parents. One day, she meets the adventurer Paul (Jeremy Mockridge) who is living on a houseboat and had recently bought a treasure map at an auction. Cleo is bursting with tension – might the map lead to the treasure she is dreaming of? Cleo and Paul set off together on an adventurous trip through the pulsating city. They meet crazy characters, lovable figures, Berlin myths and urban legends. When they arrive in Berlin's dark underground at the end of their quest, Cleo is confronted by the most important question of all: should she want to turn back time in the first place?

The idyllic village of Stainbach is being haunted by a mysterious demon. It turns out that the nightmares of Marlene (Sandra Hüller) are responsible for the dark events. She is driving some of the inhabitants of the village insane during her terrible dreams. When she discovers her nightmares are about a real place, she tracks down the village of Stainbach to get to the bottom of the mystery. There, she learns about the consequence of her dreams and suffers a nervous breakdown. Soon after, she is admitted to a psychiatric ward. Her daughter, Mona (Gro Swantje Kohlhof), journeys to Stainbach to find out the reason for her mother’s breakdown and the demonic nightmares she suffered from. She comes into contact with the peculiar villagers and discovers the dark history hidden within the quiet village. Perhaps the nightmare isn’t the demon that threatens the town after all, but rather – the past.
