If you fall asleep and dream beneath an ana tree that is struck by lightning but still lives, then your dreams will come true. “I Am Tired of Standing, I Lie Down” is the name of a talking tree, and in its proximity anything is possible. Time and space do not exist, and the rules are set by the dream. The film is the last will and testament of the Dalaroutamou acting group and consists among other things of excerpts from their previous films.

“Video is not film… a film is always a story guided by the inner rhythm of the images and expressed by the succession of shots. Unfortunately, this cinematic respiration was lost with the suicidal machine that is video.“ J. Rouch
