03 Dec 2009 :
His & Hers
Ken Wardrop’s feature documentary ‘His & Hers’ has been chosen to screen in competition as part of the 2010 Sundance film festival. ‘Bhutto’, a documentary co-photographed by Irish cinematographer Noel Donnellon (Transparent), will also screen.

Wardrop (The Herd) will see his feature documentary, ‘His and Hers’, screen in the category of World Documentary.

‘His & Hers’ is an 80 minute film that presents interviews with women from across the midlands of Ireland, chronicling a ninety-year-old love story, through the collective voice of seventy ladies. It is produced by Andrew Freedman (Undressing My Mother) and the directors of photography for the project are Michael Lavelle (Farewell Packets of Ten) and Kate McCullough (Sunshower).

Producer, Andrew Freedman, tells IFTN: “We’re thrilled that ‘His & Hers’ has been selected for Sundance, both Ken and I believe the story will resonate with audiences and we’re delighted to find that the film is reaching out beyond the borders of Ireland and appealing to international viewers. We are so grateful to the people who contributed their time and effort in making this film possible and a special word of thanks has to be given to the Irish Film Board for their support and belief in this project.”

’Bhutto’, a documentary photographed by Irish Cinematographer Noel Donnellon (Transparent) & Danish Cinematographer Jens Schlosser (The Black Madonna), has been selected for competition in the Documentary category. Donnellon & Schlosser previously worked together on the Oscar nominated documentary feature ‘Deliver Us From Evil’.

The documentary, directed by Duane Baughman and Johnny O'Hara (Fuel), takes a look at the life of the assassinated former Pakistani prime minister. Benazir Bhutto. ‘Bhutto’ was filmed in Pakistan, USA, UK and UAE and interviewees include Sir David Frost, Condaleezza Rice and members of the Bhutto family.

Held every January, the Sundance Film Festival 2010 will run from January 21st to 31st and seeks to be a premier showcase for new work from American and International independent filmmakers. It is the largest independent cinema festival in the U.S., usually seeing more than 50,000 people attending screenings in Park City, Utah.

As a response to the current economic climate next year’s festival will introduce its new category, Next which will consist of eight features of an independent nature that will be used to exemplify what ‘no-budget films’ look like.
