Kerry direc­tors new film avail­able to pre-or­der

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - NEWS - By FER­GUS DEN­NEHY

‘CON’, the feath­ure film pro­duced by Tralee fil­maker and di­rec­tor, Ber­tie Bros­nan, is now avail­able to pre-or­der in­ter­na­tion­ally on ‘Vimeo On De­mand’.

Ber­tie, who has gar­nered a good rep­u­ta­tion as a film­maker in re­cent years with films such as ‘Sineater’, ‘Brack­en­more’ and ‘Ja­cob Wrestling With The An­gel’, wrote, pro­duced, di­rected and starred in ‘Con’.

The film tells the tale of Con, a rel­a­tively suc­cess­ful fil­maker and ac­tor as he leaves re­hab to join a doc­u­men­tary film about him be­ing re-united with his es­tranged fa­ther after 25 years.

With emo­tions run­ning high how­ever and with dif­fer­ent agen­das on the ta­ble, things do not go ex­actly ac­cord­ing to plan.

Ber­tie is busy this week ar­rang­ing a trip to Cannes, where a num­ber of dis­trib­u­tors are pre­view­ing his film; while in Cannes, Ber­tie hopes that he will be able to sell ‘Con’ and gather ad­di­tional sup­port for his up­com­ing ‘Misty But­ton’ project, which he work­ing on along­side fel­low Tralee na­tive, Seanie Surge.

“It was a won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence cre­at­ing this film. The bud­get may only have been €7,000 but I was able to har­ness the cre­ative pow­ers of the small crew and the won­der­fully tal­ented cast,” said Ber­tie.

“Shoot­ing in my home­town has proved to be ef­fec­tive on two oc­ca­sions now. Sineater is al­ready dis­trib­uted world­wide and now Con will be avail­able to the mass-mar­ket­place as well,” he fin­ished.

‘Con’ is cur­rently avail­able in­ter­na­tion­ally to pre-or­der on Vimeo On De­mand on­de­mand/ con­the­film.

It’s of­fi­cial re­lease is to­mor­row, April 12. There is a spe­cial 30 per­cent dis­count on the first 500 sales.
