‘Hell's Pavement’ Lauded at Beloit Festival
08 Mar 2010 :
Hells Pavement
Oopic films’ ‘Hells Pavement’ has walked away from the 2010 Beloit International Film Festival with the Josh Burton Award of Excellence following its US premiere at the event.

‘Hell’s Pavment’ stars Irish actors Pauline McGlynn (Father Ted) and Conor Byrne (The Story of Tracey Beaker). The 90 minute film is self financed and based on the true life experiences of Galway family, the Gormans, and is helmed by Keith Gorman in his directorial debut. Keith’s mother is herself a foster mother and set up an independent fostering organisation with Keith in the UK that became the country’s number one fostering organisation.

‘Hell’s Pavement’ follows five years in the life of Aimee (played by newcomer, Keeki Bennetts) in the care system as she struggles through a range of foster placements and social care visits. The film hopes to challenge its audience to question how it is that so many well-intentioned people can do so much unintended damage and how it is that the £4 billion a year spent in the UK has failed to break the cycle of abuse, addiction and abandonment. The film features several Sinead O’Connor songs on its soundtrack and was shot in HD.

The Beloit International Film Festival, a directive of Sataeline Festivals Inc. looks to offer entertainment and education opportunities and offer relief to the underprivileged and unrepresented by using films as a vehicle for cultural awareness. The festival offers programming and venues selected as a means of enhancing a community image.
