Warsaw on speed. Pulsating electro beats, alcohol, drugs, sex, endless partying, life on the limit. One summer long, art students Kris and Michal, both in their mid-20s, let themselves go in the Polish capital. They party in their flat or pop-up clubs, dance and drink till they drop, chew over big ideas as real and as transient as the next romance. Anything is possible and little is left apart from the rush and the morning after. With flowing, dreamlike camerawork, the film captures the spirit and energy of the 20-something generation in Poland and portrays Warsaw as a subcultural centre. At the Sundance Festival, All These Sleepless Nights won the award for best direction in the category World Cinema Documentary.
