"Who Needs Sleep?" will screen at The Writers Guild Theater

Recommended Posts

Haskell Wexler has completed his documentary called "Who Needs Sleep?" which deals with the chronic long hours in the Entertainment Industry. The movie ends up saying a lot about our uniquely American cultural attitude towards work, making a living (and still having a life), insights into how people from other countries and other cultures seal with these issues, health and safety, and most importantly our families.

This screening is in L.A., I know, so it really only applies to those who are local. The movie should be widely available when there is general distribution.

April 4, 2006 starting at 7PM at 135 Doheny Dr. in Beverly Hills.

RSVP for this event at:


This will be the first unionwide screening hosted by president Patrick Verrona of the Writers Guild of America. There will be a post Q&A with Alan Rosenberg, president of the Screen Actors Guild; Yudi Bennett of the Directors Guild; John Lindley of I.A.T.S.E, and a prominent person from the American Society of Cinematographers.
