The 25th Galway Film Fleadh (9 – 14 July, 2013)
Friday, 12th July
Town Hall Theatre
Following the success of his debut feature, Savage, director Brendan Muldowney returns to the screen with his new film, Love Eternal, which screens at the 25th Galway Film Fleadh. Based on the Japanese novel In Love with the Dead, by Kei Oishi, the film focuses on a death-fixated young man trying to make sense of the world.
Conor Barry and the team behind Dublin based Fastnet Films co-produced the film with Rinkel Films of the Netherlands, Red Lion and T.O. Entertainment. A truly international venture, post-production took place in Luxembourg, making it the first Irish/Luxembourg feature to go into production following the signing of a co-production treaty at the 2011 Galway Film Fleadh.
Brendan Muldowney told Film Ireland, ‘I’m delighted to be screening Love Eternal at the 25th Galway Film Fleadh. It’s festival I have a long history with and one which was instrumental in moving my career forward’.
When Ian Harding’s (Robert de Hoog) mother dies, this isolated man must venture into a world that he no longer understands. Unable to comprehend basic human emotions, he takes the decision to end it all in a snowy forest clearing, but a rare chance encounter will change his life. Love Eternal is a rich cinematic experience, and, in his exploration of notions of life, death and the universe as a whole, Muldowney has created a bold cinematic landscape all his own.
