“We all know that Andy Warhol made a film lasting more than 5 hours of a man sleeping. After viewing it, I asked myself, ‘What would happen if I removed Warhol’s tedious passages?’ This is why I decided to film myself sleeping during 10 hours with an automatic shutter that took a frame every 10 seconds to make the only film directed by a sleeping man.” Luis Ospina
