04 May 2017 :
Still from 'Without Name'
There are some major productions screening in cinemas this weekend with Irish talent attached, which are contending with a slate of international releases.

These are ‘Without Name’, the feature debut from writer/director team Lorcan Finnegan and Garret Shanley and ‘In View’ a powerful feature by Irish Director Ciaran Creagh starring IFTA Best Actress in a Lead Role nominee Caoilfhionn Dunne.

In View

In View is a powerful and unsettling depiction of one woman’s battle with depression and the circumstances that can surround taking the traumatic decision to end one’s own life. It is a production clearly built upon extensive research which informs the detailed account given of the lead character’s decline.

Directed by Ciaran Creagh and produced by Dave Byrne and Simon Doyle with cinematography by David Grennan. ‘In View’ follows the story of Ruth her life is one of burgeoning guilt dominated by rage, alcoholism, depression and self-loathing which has its origins in a once off drunken indiscretion with a work colleague some years previous.  Having lost all that was dear to her, Ruth is still trying to seek out help but is coming to realise that there is only one course of action that may placate her soul.

In View was awarded the first prize for best screenplay at the 2016 Rhode Island International Film Festival and Caoilfhionn Dunne was nominated in the best actress category in the 2017 Irish Film and Television Awards.

Without Name

Being called an ‘eco-thriller’ the breakout feature debut from writer/director team Lorcan Finnegan and Garret Shanley releases to Irish cinemas on Friday, May 5th distributed by Element Pictures Distribution.

The film enjoyed its world premiere at TIFF 2016 to critics in agreement of its vision, creativity and the promise of great Irish cinema yet to come from the pair. With other screenings at BFI London, SITGES and ADIFF, it also received four of Brooklyn Horror Film Festival’s seven jury awards in October 2016.

It sees land surveyor Eric (Alan McKenna) undertake a project in a remote Irish wood while staying in an isolated cottage whose previous owner is as mysterious as the area itself. With an atmospheric and sound-driven narrative and the incredibly communicative yet quiet performance of McKenna, ‘Without Name’ is a film in which the environment is as much a protagonist as him.

Niamh Algar and James Browne support McKenny, with Brunella Cocchiglia of Lovely Productions producing. The editing is completed by Tony Cranstoun with Gavin O'Brien and Neil O’Connor as composers.
