In Development: Eamonn Tutty and Alan Dunne’s “An Ceann Deireanach (The Last One)”

The Last One10


Greetings film fans and welcome to a new edition of “In Development” here at  Granted, it as been a while since the last time I was able to be a part of covering a film from its starting stages as well as being a part of assisting in spreading the word about its Indiegogo Crowdfunding campaign.  So, thankfully, here we are now to bring some additional, ideally helpful, notice to Irish director Eamonn Tutty and his new project, “An Ceann Deireanach (The Last One)”.

Taking place in 1847 Ireland, the film will be a hard testament to the savage conditions and strain on men’s humanity and very sanity during one of the most trying times in Irish history–The Great Famine. Bringing a potent combination of dark thriller and perhaps non-traditional horror elements to the story, the viewer will be fully immersed via intense visuals, haunting music, and black & white delivery in order to emphasize the true plight these characters–namely Tadhg, Seamus, Jim, and Thomas–are facing and the toll it takes on them. Additionally utilizing a slower pacing to basically make the viewer think about what exactly they’re taking in, and therefore be even more engaged in the narrative, the film will bring the reality of its subject to vivid existence thanks to this technique.

But, don’t take my word for it.  Director, writer, and co-producer Eamonn Tutty had this to say about the film and its subject via the recent Press Release–“The Great Famine still remains a chapter of great importance and significance in our Nation’s history. A time of religious oppression and foreign rule, which scarred our landscape and our mentality. Professor Oonagh Walsh recently conducted a study on the links of the great famine and it’s connections to mental health. In a census report carried out in 1841 there were 1,600 inmates in district asylums after the famine by 1900 there were 17,000. The hell in which these people lived truly would have devastated their mental stability seeing loved ones starve to death, people being separated from their families to be put in workhouse’s. We want to explore that with our protagonists on this journey of escape and survival
