Ireland on Sunday is our monthly showcase for new Irish film.
The Director, Kevin Liddy will participate in a post-screening Q&A.
In his long-awaited new work, The Suffering Kind, multi-award-winning director Kevin Liddy moves away from the stark Irish countryside which defined his earlier films (Horse, Soldier’s Song and Country) to an urban setting in upstate New York. Filmed by Oscar-nominated Declan Quinn, this intimate drama about an inner city priest and a sanitation worker trying to maintain his sobriety, is about the power of delusion and the longings that haunt us.
Kevin’s first cinema short, Horse, is a muscular, poetic evocation of 1960s rural Ireland about a father’s inability to communicate with his young son, magnificently photographed by Donal Gilligan.
