Irish Sci-Fi Feature 'Earthbound' World Premiere At Seattle International Film Festival

Dublin-based production company Ripple World’s feature film ‘Earthbound’ will have its world premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival on Saturday June 2.

The sci-fi adventure is writer/director Alan Brennan’s (Shapes) directorial debut, and tells the story of Joe Norman (played by Rafe Spall), who believes aliens from the planet Zalaxon are hunting him down as he hides out on Earth. Norman, believing he too is an alien, meets down-to-earth Maria, and the pair bond over their love of sci-fi.

Writer Brennan was inspired to write ‘Earthbound’ by his love of aliens, and admits he has a “fascination with the power and value of make believe". He will attend the screening in Seattle with lead actress Jenn Murray (Dorothy Mills), producer Heidi Karin Madsen (Shapes) and editor Barry Moen (The Imaginary Girl).

‘Prometheus’ actor Spall stars alongside Murray and David Morrissey (Blitz) in the feature, which was co-produced by Ripple World and Irish production company Paper Dreams.

Dominic Wright (Retreat) and Jacqueline Kerrin (Parked) were executive producers. Ardmore Sound worked on the sound post, while Egg Post Production looked after all VFX.

The IFB, Ripple World, Egg Post Production, Ardmore Sound, Bucks Music Group and Section 481 all contributed to the funding of the film. Culture Ireland is supporting the world premiere.

Ripple World Pictures previously brought ‘Parked’, starring Colm Meaney, to Irish cinemas.
