Scottish filmmaker Amy Hardie built a career on making science documentaries, reflecting her staunchly rational mind. Then one evening she had a haunting dream of her horse dying, waking to discover that her beloved horse had passed away that same night. Shaken, she tried to pass it off as mere coincidence. But then she had another disturbing slumber, a nightmare where her deceased ex-husband predicts that she will die at age 48. After a foreboding doctor’s visit, and with her 49th birthday mere months away, she starts to wonder about the explanatory power of dreams and their impact on her own mortality. In Edge of Dreaming, Amy looks for answers everywhere, from leading biologists (Professor Irving Weissmann of Stanford) and neuroscientists (Dr. Mark Solms of the Royal London School of Medicine) to the more spiritual solutions of a shaman. With the love and support of her family, Amy chronicles her quest to untangle the knots in her unconscious and the meaning of her destabilizing dreams.

"Lyrical and poetic." - The Huffington Post

"Mesmerizing and unforgettable." - BBC Movie Cafe

"Edge of Dreaming is an extremely bold, creative, engrossing, and deeply spiritual movie filmed and directed by Amy Hardie. Medieval philosophers used to keep a skull on their desks as a reminder of mortality. Buddhist practitioners may use a skull for contemplating death. Some people regularly visit a graveyard. In this documentary, dreams set the filmmaker on an unsettling and scary path where she confronts her own fears about life and the formidable fact of death." - Spirituality and Practice.

"A metaphysical inquiry grounded in the real world, this introspective POV documentary explores the sometimes uncanny relationship of dreams to waking life. Rattled by a dream in which her late partner forecasts her impending death, Scottish science documentarian Amy Hardie turns to neuroscience as well as a shaman for insight. When she's hospitalized with a progressive lung disorder, her investigation assumes an urgent gravity. Poetic, hallucinatory effects and a candid, intimate perspective distinguish the film from new-age flakery. Ms. Hardie doesn't solve any mysteries, but she does open an unexpected pathway to healing and conveys a moving story in the process." - The Wall Street Journal
