Sleep Has Her House Blu-ray & Book


I’m honoured to have contributed an essay to the book accompanying the new Blu-ray release of Scott Barley’s masterpiece Sleep Has Her House (2017).


The Blu-ray + book package will be available for pre-order on scottbarley.com from April 20th. The disc is Region Free. Both the video and sound has been fully remastered, and in some cases, re-created from scratch. The film looks and sounds the best it has ever done. Special features include brand new remasters of Barley’s shorts Hinterlands (2016) and Womb (2017), and frames and deleted sequences from Sleep Has Her House.


The book features the following essays:
