The Other Side of Sleep, the debut feature from Irish director Rebecca Daly, is available on DVD from Friday, November 22nd.

The film had its premiere at the prestigious Directors’ Fortnight of the Cannes Film Festival before screening at the Toronto International Film Festival, among others.

Starring Antonia Campbell Hughes (Kelly + Victor, Albert Nobbs), Vicky Joyce and Sam Keeley, The Other Side of Sleep tells the story of Arlene, a sleepwalker who is like a ghost in her own life. She lives in a small town in the Midlands, surrounded by woodlands and laneways where people disappear and never come back. When she wakes in the woods one morning beside the body of a young woman, suspicions and fears start to spread through her small community.
