French Film, 'The Science of Sleep,'
to Screen at UW-Eau Claire April 19-22

RELEASED: April 10, 2007

The Science of Sleep posterEAU CLAIRE — "The Science of Sleep" (France 2006), a film written and directed by Michel Gondry ("Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"), will be presented April 19-22 at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Screenings will be at 6 and 8:30 p.m. Thursday through Sunday in Davies Theatre.

Shy, withdrawn Stephane (Gael Garca Bernal) is coaxed to return to his childhood home with the promise of a job... in the mundane world of type setting at a calendar factory. Wildly creative, Stephane has a fanciful and sometimes disturbing dream life that constantly threatens to overtake his waking world. He is soon drawn to his skittish neighbor, Stephanie (Charlotte Gainsbourg), whose imagination matches his own. As their relationship blossoms, the confidence Stephane exudes in his dreams begins bleeding over into his real life.

Subtitled in English, the 105-minute film is rated R.

Admission is $2 for International Film Society members and UW-Eau Claire faculty and staff and $1 for UW-Eau Claire students. Tickets are available at the University Service Center, 715- 836-3727, in Davies Center's east lobby, and will be sold at the door.

The film is sponsored by the International Film Society.
