It premiered in the U.S. at Joseph Papp’s Public Theatre in New York City and was featured at many international film festivals and museums. In their end-of-the-decade critic’s survey, Cahiers du Cinéma declared it to be one of the best films of the ‘80s.

Her feature film, Sleepwalk (1986), won the prestigious Prix Georges Sadoul (1986) given by the French Cinémathèque. Sleepwalk also won the Special Prize at the 1986 Mannheim Film Festival, and was the opening night selection for the 25th Anniversary of the Semaine International de la Critique at Cannes (1986). Sleepwalk was also featured at the Museum of Modern Art’s 1987 New Directors New Films Series and the 1987 Sundance Film Festival. In 1993 she made the feature film, When Pigs Fly which premiered in competition at the Locarno Film Festival and was also shown at many international film festivals (Toronto, Rotterdam etc.). Before going on to worldwide release, it won the “Best of Festival Feature” award at the 1994 Long Island Film Festival.

Driver’s other film credits include Jim Jarmusch’s Permanent Vacation (1979, producer, production manager) and Stranger Than Paradise (1984, producer).
