STUDY I AWAKENING
In Peter Weiss’ first study film, a man wakes up and performs, with monotonous movements, the everyday morning routines such as brushing his teeth, smoking a cigarette, and other chores. In Study I the atmosphere is floating between sleep and wakefulness recalling the French surrealist films of the 20s and 30s.
This film has been digitally restored by the Swedish Film Institute.
