Galway Film Fleadh 2016



Ciaran Creagh's Directorial Debut 'In View' for Fleadh
28 Jun 2016 :
The feature stars Caoilfhionn Dunne, is produced by David Byrne and edited by Emer Reynolds.

Irish Feature Film about suicide set for Irish Premiere at Galway Film Fleadh.

The world premiere of In View was held at the Dallas International Film Festival in April 2016 and the producers are delighted to present the film for the first time in Ireland at the festival.

According to In View’s producer, David Byrne, “It is extremely difficult to get funding to produce a feature film especially one of this genre. Everybody said we were mad to even attempt to make such a film. Never did we realise that so many gifted professionals within the film industry would so willingly throw their weight behind this dark dramatic tale”.

The film tells the tale of Ruth’s life which is one of burgeoning guilt dominated by rage, alcoholism, depression and self-loathing which has its origins in a once off drunken indiscretion with a work colleague years ago. Having lost all that was dear to her, Ruth is still trying to seek out help but is coming to realise that there is only one course of action that may placate her soul.

Speaking about selecting In View to this year’s line-up, Gar O’Brien said, “In View is, at its core, a powerful character -study of a lost, broken soul trying to stay afloat in the modern world, clinging desperately to the wreckage of her life. Boasting a stunning lead performance from Caoilfhionn Dunne as Ruth, In View tackles her descent into alcoholism and depression, issues which are rooted deep in Irish society, with a refreshing and haunting clarity resulting in a film that is as deeply moving as it is narratively compelling. In View is also a fiercely independent piece of Irish Cinema and one of the reasons it was selected for this year’s Fleadh is that you can see the blood, sweat and tears that went in to it, from everyone involved, right there on the screen. It’s a piece of cinema coming from a clearly passionate place.”
