Fancy getting on board and helping a talented Irish Film maker? Well, here's a great chance to be involved in a project worthy of the few bob you could give to support it.
Kevin Liddy is a talented Irish film-maker with accolades coming out of his ears. His previous works include the award winning short films 'Horse' and 'A Soldier's Song', as well as his feature debut 'Country', which he wrote and directed. 'Country', released in 2000, went on to win Best Film at the Galway Film Festival that year, Best European Film at the Verona International Film Festival, Best Film at the San Francisco Film Fest, and was in the Official Selection for Best Director at the San Sebastion Film Festival, as well as prizes at the Brussels International Film festival and Koln Conference.
His latest project 'The Suffering Kind' is a film written and directed by Kevin, and is in need of your help to get it finished.
'The Suffering Kind' is a film about the power of delusion and the longings that haunt us. A story about Michael Hannan, a sanitation worker in the town of Newburgh, upstate New York, who, recently sober, is getting through the days as best he can. Card games with the local priest, Fr. Jim, are about the height of it now as Michael whiles the hours away, his woman gone though still around, his road getting narrower, his nights longer. Fr Jim is an inner city priest doing what he can for his congregation and keeping an eye on Michaels's sobriety. A chance encounter with his past sets Michael off on a journey where the past is like a sad lullaby that haunts him so close it's all he can hear. Then one morning reality came knocking.
Kevin teamed up with fellow Irish man, friend and cinematographer, Declan Quinn to realise the script last May, when the film was shot. The film now needs that final push to get it to completion.
The project is a celebration of Irish talent, no doubt, and this campaign is a great opportunity to support that talent, not to mention Irish Film in general.
