Nuits Sans Sommeil

Stories keep me awake at night

“Nuits sans sommeil” est le portrait d’une enfance au quotidien. Un village, une famille, un petit garçon qui aime porter des robes, le retour du loup et la vie de chaque jour, ordinaire et banale, sont la matière d’un récit qui raconte les désirs enfouis.

“Stories Keep Me Awake At Night” is the portrait of day-to-day childhood. A village, a family, a little boy who likes to wear dresses, the return of the wolf and everyday life, ordinary, banal. These elements are used to tell of hidden desires.
