Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires

Often laughed off as nothing more than an affliction of adolescence, heartbreak becomes the topic of this sensitive and compelling documentary film. Christian Frei dives into the frenzied nights of the newly rejected. Nights full of pain and tears, yet also wakefulness and creativity. An anthropologist researches the astounding and profound processes that are unfolding in the brain of the lovesick. Has nature overdone it? Sleepless in New York explores the difficult path out of self-destructive obsessive behaviour, toward a new self. And it wonders about the unwavering desire –despite it all– for love.
