Production Wraps on Latest RADE Film Project

Written by Marc McDonnell, 24th June 2019

RADE is proud to announce that it has just wrapped filming on its latest two shorts “The Girl in the Window” and “The Man in the Chair”.

Written by frequent RADE collaborator Rodney Lee (Irish Light Vs Tony) and directed by Gary Boyd, both films use an art gallery in the inner city of Dublin to examine how addicts and the homeless are perceived by the upper echelon of society through Lee’s dry satirical style.

SECOND CINEMA SCREENING OF OUR NEW FILM…

RADE will be screening our new film in the main cinema IFI in Temple Bar at 12.00pm on Wednesday 13th June. This screening is for Service Users and we welcome all the other projects to join us for another ‘cracker’ from the RADE team, probably their funniest offering yet. A great opportunity for the service users to meet up and a powerful demonstration of the social contribution, that can be made by people in recovery. Please contact RADE by email info@rade.ie or 014548733 and let us know how many people you wish to bring. Book early there are only 258 seats and they’re being snapped up fast.

This short film is an absurd comedy about the desperate state of Ireland’s housing crisis. From unscrupulous landlords to the ‘invisible homeless’ and politicians reverting to Victorian attitudes, there’s never been a worse time to be without a roof over your head.

‘Spare Change’ was developed from the true-life tales of the RADE participants and their first-hand accounts of the current housing crisis.

 

RADE will also screen their highly acclaimed hilarious film from 2017 “Irish Light V’s Tony”
