Found footage film about the representation of sleep, fear and human desires in movies. The thematic sequences of THE SHAPE OF THINGS project a variety of motifs, interspersing humorous and erotic fantasies, as well as peaceful slumber with multiple phobias, private anxieties and psychological torments. This accumulation of images is open to interpretation as the viewers take their own journey, making their own connections between scenes to form their own individual narratives.
