Eamonn Tully from Tallaght Village and his co-producer, co writer, and co-director Alan Dunne are looking for support from the community to make their debut feature film on the Irish famine. The team are currently in pre-production on their soon-to-be filmed movie which needs a budget of €20,000 to get off the ground.
The film is shot in the Irish language and is called An Ceann Deireanach or The Last One. It is set against the backdrop at the height of the Irish Famine (1847) with four main protagonists.
Eamonn explained the film’s premise to us:
“A violent revolt leaves the four protagonists Tadhg, Seamus, Jim and Thomas; fleeing the safety of their village in hopes of survival. Entering the desolate woods of Ireland the battle against the elements and their own inner demons commences. As starvation slowly creeps in the line between reality and fantasy begin to blur.”
