Annie Sleeping (Menschen am Sonntag)

The cast of the German silent movie Menschen am Sonntag (1930) has inspired a number of Matt Saunders’ printmaking projects. The film classic about a group of young people spending a summer day by a Berlin lake features the character of Annie, who plays an exceptional role in the story line. Annie does not join her friends and stays in bed all day, furious after a conflict with her boyfriend. The image Saunders chose for his series of four prints unhinges Annie from her role in the film. Fast asleep, her face radiates a quiet serenity, while the viewer involuntarily enters the awkward experience of witnessing the vulnerability of a sleeping person.
