It’s been a long time coming but I’ve finally packed the DN bags, jumped on a plane and hit the indie directors’ favourite film festival, South by Southwest, or SXSW for those in the know. We open up with an interview for a film I originally saw at last year’s London Film Festival, but whose gentle charm has stuck in my mind ever since, Ken Wardrop’s His & Hers. I spoke to Ken about the jump from shorts to features and how the stories of women from middle Ireland can have the power to touch festival audiences around the world.
His & Hers (2009)
A 90-year-old love story told through the collective voice of 70 ladies at different stages of their lives.
