‘His & Hers’ and ‘A Shine of Rainbows’ Selected For London FF
09 Sep 2009 :
His & Hers
Ken Wardrop’s feature documentary ‘His & Hers’ and Vic Sarin’s feature ‘A Shine of Rainbows’ have been selected for screening at the Times BFI London Film Festival (14 – 29 October). Two Irish shorts from Tilted Pictures have also been selected.

Ken Wardrop’s ‘His & Hers’ is an 80minute documentary 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. The film will play in the Cinema Europa programme.

‘A Shine of Rainbows’ has been chosen to screen in the festival’s World Cinema strand. The Canadian/Irish co-production is directed by Vic Sarin and features performances from Connie Nielsen, Aidan Quinn and John Bell. Based on the novel by Lillian Beckwith and adapted to screen by Vic Sarin, Catherine Spear and Dennis Foon, ‘A Shine of Rainbows’ tells the story of how a lonely orphan's life is transformed by an extraordinary woman who teaches him to conquer grief and discover the magic in nature and himself.

In the short film programmes, two films from Tilted Pictures have been selected for screening, ‘The Mill’ and ‘If I Should Fall Behind’. Both films were funded through the Filmbase/ RTÉ Short Script Awards.

Screening in The Young strand, ‘If I Should Fall Behind’, is a co-production between Tilted Pictures and Fastnet Films. The 15 minute short was produced by Rory Dungan and written and directed by Morgan Bushe. The film stars Paul Roe, Fiona O'Shaughnessy, Brendan Conroy and Shane Murray Corcoran. It tells the tale of a family torn apart by grief who attempt to get themselves back on an even keel. Photography on the film was by Arthur Mulhern with sound recorded by Susan Downey and production design from Helen MacDermott. Post production was done with Headjar in London and the editor was Gwyn Moxham.

A second short, ‘The Mill’, screening in the Landscape as Character section, is produced by Rory Dungan and Rachael O'Kane and written and directed by David Freyne. The pyschological horror film stars newcomer Liam McEvoy as a young boy who, while camping with his family, wakes up one morning to find himself entirely alone. The film co-stars Lesley Conroy, Fionn O'Shea and Paul Roe. Photography was by Suzie Lavelle, sound design by Keith Lindsay and production design by Caomhin O'Conghaile. Post production was done with Screenscene in Dublin and the film was edited by Alan Freir.

The LFF will open with Wes Anderson's ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’, one of the festival's 15 world premieres. The film will be presented by the director and cast members including Meryl Streep, George Clooney, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman and Helen McCrory. Sam Taylor-Wood's ‘Nowhere Boy’ will be the closing night gala on the 29th of October.
