The Other Side of Sleep
Directed by Rebecca Daly • With Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Sam Keeley, Vicky Joyce • Produced by Fastnet Films, Rinkel Film, KMH Films
A sleepwalker. A body. A family. A small community.
Arlene is like a ghost in her life. She lives in a small town in the midlands – surrounded by field after field, woodlands and laneways to disappear down and never come back…
One morning Arlene wakes in the woods beside the body of a young woman. Someone watches from the trees. The body is soon discovered and suspicion spreads through the community. Increasingly drawn to the girl’s family – her grieving sister and accused boyfriend, Arlene barricades herself in at night, afraid to sleep. Haunted by grief buried and delayed, Arlene’s sleeping and waking realities soon blur. And all this time someone is watching her.
