Acclaimed director, Frank Berry comes to Galway Film Fleadh this week with his new feature film, I USED TO LIVE HERE and we’re delighted to be running a competition to win two tickets to it. Featuring performances from a mostly non-professional cast, and filmed on the streets of Tallaght in west Dublin, this film offers a striking dramatic representation of a real-life community on screen. The film screens this Friday July 11th at 5.30pm at the IMC.
It tells the story of Amy Keane, a thirteen-year-old trying to cope with the death of her mother and the reappearance of her father’s ex-girlfriend, who experiences the temptation of suicide after witnessing the outpouring of love for a local suicide victim. I Used to Live Here takes a fictional look at how the idea of suicide can spread in communities, particularly among young people.
Frank’s feature documentary, BALLYMUN LULLABY, screened at Galway Film Fleadh in 2011. It was also screened at festivals around the world and Frank won the Screen Director’s Guild of Ireland Director’s Finder Award in 2011.
