Dublin Screening for ‘The Suffering Kind’


The Galway Film Fleadh screened short by Kevin Liddy and Edited by Simon McGuire; The Suffering Kind; will have a special screening on September 14th at the IFI in Dublin. Also to be screened will be Kevin’s award winning short ‘Horse’. Kevin and certain crew will be in attendance.

(Below is Taken from IFI website)

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.
