Rebecca Daly has joined the acclaimed line-up of women filmmakers celebrated at Cannes this year after her debut The Other Side of Sleep drew praise from critics everywhere. Her dark minimalist thriller premiered on the Croisette on Friday evening, where she was championed by the award-winning New Zealand director of The Piano, Jane Campion. The film was developed with the Irish Film Board over four years and is the first feature made by an Irishwoman to appear in Cannes’ prestigious Director’s Fortnight selection. Four teaser clips have been released for the film which you can watch below.

Here is the official plot summary for the film:

The Other Side of Sleep tells the story of 23-year-old Arlene. She is a ghost in her life. Born and raised in a small town in the Irish midlands: a region of field after field, deserted woodlands and laneways that it’s possible to disappear down and never come back.

One winter morning Arlene wakes in the woodland to find herself lying beside the body of a murdered young woman. As she’s forced to question whether or not she’s responsible, she is drawn into the woman’s world, to those left behind: her younger sister and her teenage lover who is a suspect in the murder.  As Arlene continues to deprive herself of sleep; reality, her perception and her subconscious slip over each other and through her grasp. And all this time someone is watching her.

In 2006, Daly wrote and directed the short film Joyriders, which was awarded with numerous international awards, such as Best Debut Irish Short at the Galway Film Fleadh, the Irish Film and Television Award 2007 for Best Short and the Best Actress Award at the Festival du Court Metrage in Brussels. In 2008, she participated in the prestigious co-production market Cinéfondation of the International Film Festival in Cannes with The Other Side of Sleep. Moreover, the project was selected for the Open Doors Pitch Market of the Locarno International  Film Festival.
