THE screening of an acclaimed movie from a Tralee director will take place next week in Killarney.
‘Dead Along The Way’, written and directed by Maurice O’Carroll will be put on at Cinema Killarney on Tuesday, March 7 at 8.30pm.
This will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers, and will be hosted by IFTA nominated Alex Fegan.
‘Dead Along The Way’ is an independent feature which had its world premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh in 2016 and went on to win best independent feature film at The Underground Cinema Film Festival and also opened the Indie Cork Film Festival last November.
Since then the film is on a limited theatrical release and at various venues nationwide and as one night only events.
The plot of the movie revolves around Wacker and Tony – a pair of down-on-their-luck videographers – who are about to video a wedding, and they think their lives can’t get any worse.
Wacker’s wife has chucked him out, he has been beaten up over money she borrowed for fertility treatment, and a drink-fuelled incident the night before has put his friendship with Tony under huge strain.
But their problems are only beginning: Big Jim – a notorious loan shark who is also having a pretty bad time of it after learning about his 16 year old daughter’s pregnancy – visits the church and dies after a scuffle with Tony.
The videographers decide to try and conceal their crime before any wedding guests arrive. What happens next is ungodly. For tickets to the Killarney screening click here
