Killorglin screenwriter film in Cannes debut

Tuesday May 17th 2022

Congratulations and best of luck from K-FEST to Killorglin’s Shane Crowley, writer, and producer Fodhla Cronin-O’Reilly from Cromane, who has a film premiering at Directors’ Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival this week is shown May 19th, 20th and 27th. God Creatures stars Emily Watson, Paul Mescal and Aisling Franciosi, and is directed by Saela Davis and Anna Rose Holmer.

God’s Creatures is a powerful drama set in a windswept rural fishing village, where a mother is torn between protecting her beloved son and her own sense of right and wrong. A lie she tells for him rips apart their family and close-knit community in this tense, sweepingly emotional epic.

It is one of only 24 feature films that will debut in the 54th Cannes Directors’ Fortnight line-up this year, which runs from 18th to 27th May.
