As a proud Repealer I'm very excited to hear about a new short film on the issue, written and directed by Karl Callan with the aim of showing his audience the faces behind the 8th amendment. Three stories, from three Irish women, depicted in poignant scenes by actors Maureen O'Connell, Lynette Callaghan, Aidan O'Sullivan, Michael O'Kelly, Niamh Walsh, Rebecca Thompson, Maria Fiorentini, Patrick Bokin, Conor Waldron and Sofia Bwcka.
"I researched the stories, spoke with women I know who had been through similar situations. I also spoke to medical professionals and learned of the difficulties they go through as a result of the restrictions put on them.I wanted to make sure the film was as realistic as possible"
- Karl Callan
This unique film is set to be released April 6th, 2018 on social media, so keep an eye on their Facebook page and give it a like.
If you are lucky enough to live near Dublin, there's going to be an early screening with limited spaces. So get in there quickly! See the event for details -
And sure be sound and also follow them on Twitter. The more publicity, the better.
I'll post up a review once I get my peepers on the finished product!
