Irish Film: Poster unveiled for Fading Away, film premieres on November 14th

Ahead of its world premiere at the Cork Film Festival on Saturday, November 14th, the official poster has been released for new Irish independent feature Fading Away.

Fading Away is a psychological horror, telling the story of Leila, the fearsome front-woman of a struggling rock band who has a diehard belief that her music will change the world. After meeting a mysterious mentor she inadvertently wishes the iconic album ‘Golden Boy’ from the band Double Eagle – out of existence, leaving the music hers for the taking. As she struggles with her music, band and new love, her supernatural mentor proves to be a darker force than she realised.

The successfully crowd funded film stars Antonia Campbell-Hughes (The Other Side of Sleep) with Kate Stanley Brennan (Dollhouse), Emma-Eliza Regan (Darkness at the Edge of Town) and Mark Huberman (Frank) featuring music by Jerry Fish and Irish band The Minutes. The film is directed by Edwina Casey, David Johnston, Lisa Winstanley and produced by Dave Minogue, Grace Coughlan and Andrew Loughran.

Fading Away is one of two showing at the Cork Film Festival that was made by Filmbase Masters students in the last year. The other, Monged, plays on November 13th. For more information check out the film’s Facebook Page and Twitter.
