2024 - The End of Romance [feature] in development
Writer, Director: Trish McAdam
with funding from the Screen Ireland/Fís Éireann and Creative Europe
Set in Normandy, Paris, London and Ireland, in 1916-1918, The End of Romance remains relevant to contemporary times, in the poetry, in the lives of these larger-than-life characters, their personal, creative and political challenges.
This story has a backdrop war and the social upheaval of the electronic revolution of the early 20th century as precursor to the war and social upheaval of our early 21st century digital era. Change, accelerated change, then and now.
The creative challenge of the story's style, meta meshing of visual truth and poetic imagination, draws a wonderful cast and crew to the subject, to engage in the process of the telling, in front and behind the camera, to borrow from digital and modernist experimentation and classicism. We are after all, the generation who has such extraordinary access to knowledge that reflects on all that.
