Galway Film Fleadh shows The Widow’s Last
Charlotte headed to Galway to rejoin the cast and crew of The Widow’s Last and celebrate the short film being highlighted at the 2017 Galway Film Fleadh.
The festival acts as a springboard for the best in Irish film, and is proud to be associated with socially conscious cinema. “We believe that cinema has the power to not only inform, but to change, to convince, to mobilise people,” say the organisers.
“We are proud to present an expanded selection of films this year that engage with some of the biggest issues around Ireland and the world.”
“The Widow’s Last is very much a story of the past that resonates with our present,” explains director Vaness Perdriau. “It poses the question – how will we respond to need we see through the life of a destitute Irish widow who encounters a wounded Englishman and must decide if she will be hardened by hatred or moved in compassion? The film employs a parallel narrative, to sharply counterpoint the paths of forgiveness and hatred.”
