It's not yet dark

International Competition


by Frankie Fenton

(Irlanda / 2016 / 81’)

Simon Fitzmaurice's eyes show a man who battles with his demons every day. ALS has imprisoned him in a block of flesh that was once his body, in which the only form of living is through his memories of when, in addition to a career as a director, he was starting a family with his wife Ruth. How do you regain your voice? Simon finds release thanks to a computer that he controls through his pupil’s movements, succeeding in writing a book and directing a film. A bittersweet ode to life that has moved audiences at Sundance Film Festival, with Colin Farrell voicing the protagonist's thoughts. A story enriched by glimpses of exquisite reflections of the kind of nature that refuses to yield to the dark.
