Sundance Update: Mike Birbiglia’s SLEEPWALK WITH ME has Baltimore Connections

SLEEPWALK WITH ME Screening at Sundance 2012

Comedian-turned-playwright-turned-filmmaker Mike Birbiglia‘s new film, SLEEPWALK WITH ME is his autobiographically inspired, fictional feature debut.

In this photo, Baltimore native and NPR essayist Ira Glass (who co-produced the film) is in the center in the dark gray coat, and Mike Birbiglia  is closest to the camera.  They’re talking about adapting Mike’s successful one-man show for the screen.

The project came through the Sundance Labs and is a fascinating (and funny) tale about figuring out career, relationships, and how they might fit together. Or not. Lauren Ambrose is wonderful as the girlfriend.
