Bertie Brosnan (pictured) has received funding from Cork City Arts for his new project, Forgotten Paradise, and is currently in pre-production, with a shoot date set for 12th August 2016.
Actor Charlie Ruxton (Titanic: Blood & Steel, Rest My Bones, Into the West) will feature. Epic Productions’ cinematographer Justin MacCarthy will shoot the piece,
According to Bertie, “The film is about a very unwell man who is dying from living rough and alcoholism but it’s not a stereotypical view on the matter, the man comes from a distinguished background of high-regard but noone knows as he cannot speak but has an internal dialogue playing out in his mind. As an audience we listen in to what is being said and ultimately to the destiny that he is choosing. I guess it’s a reality check on the ‘Forgotten people of Ireland’. “
