Film Award for Down the Ladder

Down the Ladder

Sean Corcoran and Angela Mulcahy above receiving the award for ‘Down the Ladder’ as the overall runner-up best film at the Waterford Film Festival from Festival Director Stephen Byrne.

Down the Ladder

The film was made by Copper Coast Productions @ The Art Hand and tells of a day in the life of a copper mining family. It’s an emotional film presented as a silent movie. Set in Ireland in the 1800’s.

We are also honoured to have received this message today from New Zealand film director Michael Heath (pictured above) on seeing ‘Down the Ladder’ for the first time; CONGRATULATIONS SEAN and ANGELA, MOOK and ALEX and all cast & crew- for a most sensitive, and touching film. I was so happy to see it at last. How glorious to see the sad past re-created in such simple imagery and story-telling- that took one back a long time ago…and you have achieved a little miracle in its naturalistic style in both performance and use of land and seascape. The final scene of the boy and the dog and the boat going out to sea is beautiful, and I was immensely moved…..
