In a new short film directed by Gotham and Indie Spirit nominated director, Olivia Wilde (Booksmart), Emmy nominated Margaret Qualley (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) stars as a woman forced to rediscover her humanity in an increasingly digital world.
“It was such a thrill to collaborate with Margaret Qualley to tell this story about what it means to be human. With legendary cinematographer Matty Libatique, and the rest of our extraordinary crew, I had the chance to make something wild and strange and timely,” said Wilde.
Produced by The Lab at Anonymous Content and filmed throughout New York City by two-time Oscar-nominated Director of Photography, Mathew Libatique (Pi, Black Swan, A Star Is Born), WAKE UP comes off the heels of Oliva Wilde’s critically-acclaimed, award winning, directorial debut, Booksmart. Wilde will next direct and star in the psychological thriller for the Time’s Up era “Don’t Worry Darling”for New Line.
Margaret Qualley received praise for her starring turn opposite Brad Pitt in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood”and also for her Critics’ Choice best supporting actress nomination for her work on the FX mini-series, “Fosse/Verdon.” Look for her next alongside Sigourney Weaver in director Philippe Falardeau’s “My Salinger Year.”
The film’s original music score is performed by indie pop darling Perfume Genius, who won video of the year at last year’s A2IM Libera Awards.
