Julie Barclay – Wild Geese
Julie features in Iris Production’s short film Wild Geese, airing as part of Iris Prize Film Festival running from the 9th to the 14th of October 2018 having already been aired at festivals in Toronto, Los Angeles and Dublin.
When Amy (Emma Pierson) catches her husband cheating on her with another man, she falls down the stairs and bangs her head on the way down. She wakes up in hospital with severe amnesia, thinking it’s the year 1999 and she’s 16. She has fully reverted back into being a teenager complete with Emo poetry and hormonal outspoken attitude with absolutely no memory of the past 20 years especially that weak-chinned husband of hers. However, crucially, she has now become fixated on tracking down her high school best friend, and first love, Polly (Lisa McGrillis).
Directed by Susan Jacobson and written by Katie Campbell and Kayleigh Llewellyn, this is a darkly funny yet poignant story of recovery and the redemptive nature of love.
