About: "A withdrawn factory girl (Antonia Campbell-Hughes) who’s prone to bouts of sleepwalking awakens in a forest, lying beside the corpse of a young woman. She becomes obsessed with the girl’s murder – her mother had met a similar fate decades earlier – and finds herself drawn to the victim’s family as her grasp on reality begins to unravel. Whereas some filmmakers might exploit such a premise for its potential as a pulpy whodunnit, Rebecca Daly’s intriguing debut feature is far more concerned with its profound exploration of loss, coupled with an evocative portrait of small-town Irish ennui. Filmed in Offaly, The Other Side of Sleep is dominated by a largely wordless and deceptively complex performance from swiftly ascending star Campbell-Hughes, who says an awful lot by doing very little. Reminiscent at times of Sean Penn’s sorely underappreciated The Pledge, this deeply immersive mood piece is by turns haunting and hazy, reflecting its protagonist's somnambulant state. It’s a quiet triumph that gets under your skin. (Notes by Derek O'Connor.)
The March 15th screening of this film is a preview and will be attended by Director Rebecca Daly, Producers Morgan Bushe and Macdara Kelleher, and cast Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Sam Keeley, Cathy Belton, Anna Cahalin, Betty Brennan, Arlene Kelly and Vicky Joyce. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Rebecca Daly, Antonia Campbell-Hughes and Director of the Dublin Fringe Festival, Róise Goan." www.ifi.ie
