Colin Farrell narrates the powerful clip, which gives a small look at a larger and groundbreaking story of perseverance.
It’s Not Yet Dark opens in New York City on August 4th, after having its world premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. Directed by Frankie Fenton and narrated by Golden Globe-winning actor Colin Farrell, the documentary tells the story of Simon Fitzmaurice, a young Irish filmmaker who is diagnosed with Motor neuron disease (MRN) and his journey directing his first feature film. Using a Tobii eye gaze computer, Fitzmaurice completed the script and communicated with crew and actors through the use of eye gazing technology. His feature film, titled My Name Is Emily, premiered in 2015 and was nominated for eight Irish Film & Television Academy Awards.
The documentary is 100% certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and has been receiving rave reviews from critics, with Indie Wire calling it “moving” and Variety stating it’s a “crowd-pleaser.” In addition to its showing in New York City, the film will also be playing at additional select cities and will be available on On Demand.
