FNI Wrap Chat # 201 | Ken Wardrop | Director (So This Is Christmas -In Cinemas Now!)
Friend of the show Ken Wardrop of Venom Films returns to talk to Luke Brabazon about his brand new feature documentary So This Is Christmas. We urge everyone to see this funny, beautiful and incredibly moving film in the cinema. It is the antidote to all the pre-Christmas madness.
Ken studied filmmaking at the National Film School, IADT. His short films have screened at many of the worlds most prestigious festivals including Sundance and Cannes. He has presented retrospective programmes at the Cork International Film Festival, and at festivals in the UK, Croatia, The Netherlands and in Scandinavia. In 2008, his work received the Grand Prix Award at Sapporo International Film Festival in Japan.
HIS & HERS is a creative documentary that combines observation and imagination to illustrate a universal love story. The film explores woman’s relationship with man by visiting moments from the lives of 70 female characters. Shot in the hallways, living rooms and kitchens across the Irish Midlands, the story moves sequentially from young to old to deliver a unique insight into sharing life’s journey.
