The suspense thriller stars François Arnaud as he plays the lead role of a publicity-seeking radio DJ who is driven to the edge of insanity when he attempts to break the 11-day world record for staying awake – under the threat of a deranged caller who will kill him if he falls asleep. The film also features an all-star cast including Reiko Aylesworth (24), Stelio Savante (Ugly Betty, Running for Grace), Chloe Brooks (Embeds) and stand-up comedian Godfrey (Godfrey: Regular Black), and is directed by Peter Bishai, who previously directed the South African epic Colors of Heaven.
Synopsis: Rapid Eye Movement is about New York radio DJ Rick Weider who takes pride in championing unknown musicians. But Rick’s insistence on playing by his own rules rankles his new corporate bosses, who will fire him if his ratings don’t improve. His only hope to save his job is to pull off a publicity stunt to quickly boost the ratings. His solution: while broadcasting from a glass booth in Times Square, he will attempt to break the 11-day world record for staying awake, raising money for charity in the process. The stakes rise considerably when a deranged caller threatens to kill him unless he succeeds. With his life now on the line, Rick begins unraveling physically, emotionally and mentally, forced to confront his own demons while trying to outplay his seemingly powerful and unbeatable enemy. Rapid Eye Movement charts the quest of a man who pushes himself beyond the limits of human endurance to first save his job, then his life, and ultimately, his soul.
