Following premieres at the International Film Festival in Rotterdam and South by Southwest Festival in the US, DAPHNE will receive its UK premiere at this year's Edinburgh International Film Festival on Friday 23 June, screening in the Best of British category. The film will then be released nationwide on 29 September through Altitude.
Set in modern day London, DAPHNE tells the story of a 31-year-old woman who is witty and charismatic. On some days, she seems to have everything going for her, on others she can be self-destructive and scattered. This vibrant contemporary drama shows Daphne navigating the maze of modern life, caught in the rush of working in a big city and the buzz of a busy social life - she is the life of the party but too busy to question how unhappy she is. When Daphne finds herself embroiled in a violent incident, her fragile grasp on her own behavior loosens. The question is whether the emotional incident will help her find a new footing or allow her to sink altogether.
