From the symposium website:
ULA STO?CKL (director in attendance) Sleep of Reason (82 min, 1984) Thursday, May 23, 7pm, Innis Town Hall, Innis College, 2 Sussex Avenue
An extraordinary drama of sexual psychology among three generations of women, executed with emotional rigour and moral precision. Gynecologist and scientist, Dea (a Medea-like figure), spearheads a campaign against the pharmaceutical industry to publicize the damaging effects of the birth-control pill. A highly personal film, filled with archaic pathos. Recipient of the Federal Republic’s highest honours, the German Film Prize and German Film Critics Prize.
