Liam Clarke’s internationally award winning film 2 TONNE HANDS will screen at the Oscar qualifying Rhode Island Film Festival this August. Directed by and starring Liam – the film follows a shy, young Polish builder who is stranded and lost in Ireland after losing his job. Separated from his wife and child and without friends, he applies his big awkward hands to using music to help him turn his life around.
Since its release this year, 2 TONNE HANDS has picked up a Bronze Palm @ The Mexico International Film Festival and a Silver Medal @ Park City Film Music Festival in Utah.’
“I like to see personal stories with ordinary characters in, what is for them, extraordinary situations,” says Liam Clarke, writer and director of the film.
“… not only is the storyline relevant and heartwarming, but the music is absolutely bonechilling.”
Del Weston, founder of the Action on Film Festival, California.
