Emu Productions ‘The Looking Glass’ set for North American Release and ‘The Shadows’ to Premiere at Galway Film Fleadh
13 Jun 2013 : By Kevin Cronin
A scene from ‘The Looking Glass’, picked up for US and Canadian distribution.
Dublin-based Emu Productions has double cause for celebration this week with the announcement that its feature film ‘The Looking Glass’ has been picked up for DVD and Video on Demand distribution in North America; and ‘The Shadows’ will have its world premiere at this year’s Galway Film Fleadh.

‘The Looking Glass’ - a surrealist fantasy horror written and directed by Colin Downey and produced by Eimear O’Kane - will be released on DVD and VOD in the US and Canada on 19th November.

Brinkvision, the LA and New York based distributors, acquired the film for release in such major retail chains as Blockbuster, Barnes & Noble and Target and online via iTunes, Netflix and Amazon.

The plot follows a young man named Paul (Patrick O’Donnell) and his pregnant wife Claire (Natalia Kostrzewa), whose lives are complicated by the arrival of his malevolent mother-in-law, Agnes (Sanne Hulst).

The film was made with the support of the Irish Film Board under their Micro Budget Scheme.

‘The Shadows’, meanwhile, is an adaptation of George MacDonald's fairytale of the same name and will have its world premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh in July.

The film tells the story of ten-year-old Matthew (Lorcan Melia) who finds a key to a parallel world inhabited by a number of characters including Alice (Emma Eliza Regan) and Yorrick (Michael Parle) who must help him to protect an ancient crown from an evil witch (Natalia Kostrzewa).

The trailers for both ‘The Looking Glass’ and ‘The Shadows’ are available to view below.
