Following on from the highly acclaimed series The Asylum and The Hospice, Alan Gilsenan’s I see a Darkness is the opening documentary in a new series about suicide in Ireland. The film is a raw and intimate re-telling of the story of the death by suicide of Simon Moroney, a fifteen year-old from Drogheda. Simon’s friends and family speak with remarkable honesty and courage in this starkly unadorned and moving film. Strangely haunting in it’s simplicity, I see a Darkness is an unflinching meditation on profound and inexplicable grief.
Director Alan Gilsenan and members of Moroney family will attend. There will be a post show discussion, followed by a reception hosted by the Radharc Trust.
