“Many of us know the freedom of our twenties—unfettered by responsibilities or mortality, inventing ourselves in the rush of the moment. All These Sleepless Nights viscerally summons that feeling, chronicling a Warsaw summer when art school classmates Kris and Michal resolve to experience life to the limit. Who will they meet, and what will they discover about relationships and themselves? What existential realities will thwart them? Marczak paints a picture of a Warsaw suspended between its traumatic past and a new generation bursting with energy…this story of youthful adventure, like a picaresque novel, is timeless.”—Sundance Film Festival.
