Simon Editing on Kevin Liddy’s ‘The Suffering Kind’

With it’s broadcast premiere on RTE 2’s Shortscreen Monday Night (15th February at 11:40pm), the journey of this intriguing short film is coming full circle. Back in September 2013 director Kevin Liddy contacted me with a hard drive and script under the arm asking if i would take a look at the footage he filmed with DOP Declan Quinn (Leaving Las Vegas, Breakfast on Pluto, In America) in New York.

Shot on 35mm film the approach was to keep to Kevin’s script as much as possible while also allowing the footage to naturally form creative ideas in the edit. Using Avid Media Composer the film was edited over a number of months (some 14-16 passes) while all the time experimenting with Kevin’s vision and Rori Coleman‘s superb music composition.

This Monday’s Shortscreen is THE SUFFERING KIND, directed by Kevin Liddy (Country; Horse..) and shot by Declan Quinn (Leaving Las Vegas; In America; Breakfast on Pluto..).
It’s the story of a recently sober sanitation worker in upstate New York, getting through the days as best he can. He whiles away the hours, his woman gone though still around, his road getting narrower, his nights longer. Father Jim is an inner city priest keeping an eye on Micheal’s sobriety. The past is like a sad lullaby that haunts him so close it’s all he can hear. Then reality comes knocking.
RTÉ2: Monday @ 11:40pm

Ireland on Sunday is our monthly showcase for new Irish film.

The Director, Kevin Liddy will participate in a post-screening Q&A.

In his long-awaited new work, The Suffering Kind, multi-award-winning director Kevin Liddy moves away from the stark Irish countryside which defined his earlier films (Horse, Soldier’s Song and Country) to an urban setting in upstate New York. Filmed by Oscar-nominated Declan Quinn, this intimate drama about an inner city priest and a sanitation worker trying to maintain his sobriety, is about the power of delusion and the longings that haunt us.

Kevin’s first cinema short, Horse, is a muscular, poetic evocation of 1960s rural Ireland about a father’s inability to communicate with his young son, magnificently photographed by Donal Gilligan.
