“Sleepwalkers, as the title goes, will set us up to reflect on our everyday actions and the expectations we have in our relationship with Mother Nature. That’s important to us in a film, it should not just entertain and tell a story but also leave you questioning and reflecting on your own action and deeds.”
Honey Trehan adds,
“In a woke society, we bear the responsibility to talk about issues which are troubling all of us at large. Sleepwalkers questions society as it is.”
Producer Abhishek Chaubey adds,
“Sleepwalkers is a deeply felt and stirring debut by Radhika Apte about something that concerns us all. While we pay lip service to climate change, we seldom accept our own culpability in it. Lalit, Honey and I are extremely proud to be a part of this film by Radhika and quite eager to see the audience experience Sleepwalkers and the other films in our anthology Lost and Found soon”.
