‘Max Richter’s Sleep’ will have its North American Premiere at Sundance Film Festival 2020. Eagle Rock Films are proud to present the documentary from JA Films and Globe Productions, produced by Julie Jakobek, Yulia Mahr, Oualid Mouaness and Stefan Demetriou and directed by Emmy-nominated, award-winning filmmaker Natalie Johns.
The film follows composer and performer Max Richter as he consolidates an ambitious performance of his critically acclaimed eight-hour opus, SLEEP. The film plunges deeply into the artist’s life and process, transcending the work to explore his legacy. Personal reflections from Max Richter, and visual archive from his long-term creative partner, the BAFTA winning filmmaker, Yulia Mahr – the co-architect of SLEEP – help build this intimate portrait – along with contributions that illuminate both the science and story behind the work.

I’ve done a lot now – 8 solo albums, ballets, operas, theatre productions, collaborations with other artists and musicians, as well as over 50 films. Every day of this beautiful life takes my breath away – but this day when the vinyls arrived was like no other. A vinyl collection of my work! The little boy in me can’t stop smiling. Thank you Deutsche Grammophon for putting together this collection.
