Irish Film: Annie Atkins designed poster for I Used To Live Here

Wildcard Distribution has the quad poster for I Used To Live Here, the powerful new feature film from Irish writer-director Frank Berry. The poster was designed by Dublin based graphic designer Annie Atkins, who was part of the Academy Award winning Production Design team for Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel.

The film, which won the Best First Feature Audience Award at last year’s Galway Film Fleadh, follows Amy Keane, a 13-year-old trying to cope with the death of her mother and the reappearance of her father’s ex-girlfriend, who experiences the temptation of suicide after witnessing the outpouring of love for a local suicide victim. The film takes a fictional look at how the idea of suicide can spread in communities, particularly among young people.

From the director of the award-winning documentary Ballymun Lullaby and researched with the assistance of Headstrong, the National Centre for Youth Mental Health, the film features performances from a mostly non-professional cast including Jordanne Jones, Dafhyd Flynn, James Kelly and Ross Geraghty, and filmed on the streets of Killinarden in Tallaght, Dublin, the film offers a striking dramatic representation of a real-life community on screen.

I Used To Live Here will be released in Irish cinemas on April 3rd by Wildcard Distribution, certificate 15A.
