Director Kevin Liddy’s new film to show as part of the IFI’s Ireland on Sunday showcase…

In his long-awaited new work, THE SUFFERING KIND, multi-award-winning director Kevin Liddy moves away from the stark Irish countryside which defined his earlier films (HORSE, SOLDIER’S SONG and COUNTRY) to an urban setting in upstate New York.

Filmed by Oscar-nominated Declan Quinn, THE SUFFERING KIND is an intimate drama about an inner city priest and a sanitation worker trying to maintain his sobriety, is about the power of delusion and the longings that haunt us.

Kevin Liddy’s first cinema short, HORSE, is a muscular, poetic evocation of 1960s rural Ireland about a father’s inability to communicate with his young son, magnificently photographed by Donal Gilligan.

THE SUFFERING KIND will screen alongside Kiddy’s short, HORSE, as part of the Irish Film Istitute’s IReland on Sunday Showcase, on September 14th at 1pm. Tickets are available from the IFI box office, or here
