“Brother of Sleep,” the story of a musician coming to terms with his professional expression and personal reticence, has been selected as Germany’s submission for the upcoming Academy Awards in the foreign-language film category. Directed by Joseph Vilsmaier, the intense, emotional drama recently premiered in Germany to strong, upbeat reviews.

Vilsmaier, a noted cameraman prior to his directorial debut in 1988, is best known for the war epic “Stalingrad,” which is scheduled to open in Los Angeles in early 1996.
