11 Apr 2023 : News Desk
Wildcard Distribution has released the official trailer for Keeper Pictures’ Sunlight.

The feature debut from Claire Dix was written by Ailbhe Keogan (Joyride, Run & Jump) and stars Barry Ward (Extra Ordinary, Dating Amber), Liam Carney (Braveheart, The Commitments), and Maureen Beattie (Outlander, Doctor Who).

Former addict Leon (Ward) loves his best friend Iver (Carney) more than anything else in the world. When Iver gets a terminal diagnosis and decides to be euthanized, Leon won’t let him go without a fight. He forces Iver to agree to one last day in Dublin, hoping to convince him to live.

The film was produced by Roisin Geraghty for Keeper Pictures (formerly Blinder Films), and screened at both the Glasgow Film Festival and Dublin International Film Festival last month.

Claire Dix is an award-winning filmmaker in both short fiction and documentary films who has received two IFTA nominations.  Her debut feature documentary Broken Song picked up the Audience Award at the Dublin International Film Festival in 2013 while more recently her short films have garnered awards at film festivals across the globe. 

Sunlight received funding from Screen Ireland’s POV Female Creative Talent Scheme. The film is executive produced by Katie Holly and Yvonne Donohoe for Keeper Pictures, and Lesley McKimm and Niamh Fagan for Screen Ireland.

This is the second time Dix has collaborated with writer Ailbhe Keogan and producer Roisin Geraghty as they previously worked together on the short film Take Me Swimming.

Sunlight will release in Irish and UK cinemas on 16th June.
