Success predicted for ‘Psychic’ film

Brendan Gleeson has directed the short film ‘Psychic’.

NORTHSIDE film star Brendan Gleeson is set to make his directorial debut with a new short film. 

Shooting was wrapped up last week on ‘Psychic’, a film that was written by Rory Gleeson (Rockadoon Shore).

Psychic tells the story of a charismatic psychic (Brendan Gleeson) who is forced out of retirement by his two manipulative sons (Domhnall and Brian Gleeson) and taken on the road. 

The last obstacle to gaining a large cult following is a TV show host determined to bring them down. 

‘Psychic’ is a dark and human tale of showmanship, the other world and family.

The film, which stars Brendan, Domhnall and Brian Gleeson alongside the wonderful Ingrid Craigie (The Delinquent Season, When Harvey Met Bob), was shot in Wicklow and in the National Film School at IADT with the support of the IADT staff and the faculty of film, art and creative technologies.

The production is co-funded by Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board (IFB) and Sky Arts and will air on Sky Arts in early 2019.

Speaking about the production, Brendan Gleeson said: “I am thrilled to be sharing this adventure with such a special cast and crew. 

“I'm grateful for the support of the IFB and Sky and I look forward to its release next year. Psychic will be ...magic!”
