Editorial Reviews

Produced by The Institute for Cinema Studies
Written and Directed by Haskell Wexler
Producer: Tamara M. Maloney
Producer's Associate: Kinga Dobos
Editors: Lisa Leeman, Tamara Maloney
Music: Greg Landau

Ahhh... the glamorous life in Hollywood. Or is it? Film crews routinely work sweatshop hours, often clocking 15 to 18 hour days at the expense of their families, their health, their well-being, and even their lives.

In 1997, after a 19-hour day on the set, assistant cameraman Brent Hershman fell asleep behind the wheel, crashed his car, and died. Deeply disturbed by Hershman's preventable death, filmmaker and multiple-Oscar-winning cinematographer Haskell Wexler shows how sleep deprivation and long work hours are a lethal combination. WHO NEEDS SLEEP? is a commentary on our quality of life.

With ENGLISH and SPANISH SUBTITLES.
