The debut feature film by Belfast writer and director Stacey Gregg will tour Northern Ireland in May and June as part of Film Hub NI’s Collective programme which brings local films to local places. This tense psychological thriller, which was written and directed by Stacey Gregg and filmed in Northern Ireland, tells the haunting story of a mother’s love. Laura (Andrea Riseborough) becomes obsessed by Megan (Niamh Doran) a little girl who moves in next door, believing Megan is her reincarnated child Josie who died several years ago.
It also stars Jonjo O’Neill as Brendan, Laura’s husband, Lewis McAskie as her son Tadgh and Eileen O’Higgins and Martin McCann as the new next door neighbours, Marie and Chris.
Stacey Gregg was born in Dundonald, East Belfast. Her credits include Here Before (2021), The Innocents (2018) and Mercy (2018). She is currently directing a block of The Baby for HBO and in development for a second feature with BBC film.
She says: “It’s such a pleasure to share the film with audiences across Northern Ireland and I’m delighted Film Hub will be presenting Here Before. There’s nothing quite like working with our own immensely talented cast and crew, seeing our landscape and hearing our voices on screen. Looking forward to meeting audiences all over and getting to enjoy cinema together.”
