Sleep is a 1963 film by Andy Warhol which consists of long take footage of John Giorno, his lover at the time, sleeping for over five hours. The film was one of Warhol's first experiments with filmmaking, and was created as an "anti-film". Warhol would later extend this technique to his eight-hour-long film Empire.
