GAME OF TRUTH Being Distributed

Covid or not, the show must go on and that is what happened to GAME OF TRUTH, a co-production between Belgium, France and Ireland, shot in the middle of a lockdown in Belfast and edited remotely. The editor was in Brussels and the director in DC, with a schedule that accomodated the time difference. Thanks to technology, it was very possible. Eventually the feature documentary about families fighting for the truth surrounding the death of their loved ones, during the 30 years of conflict between Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland, had its world premier at the FIPA in Biarritz France last January. At the same, the director, Fabienne Lips-Dumas, was lucky enough to finish her first novel during the filming hiatus and to find a publisher in Paris, that same year. Les virtuoses de Brooklyn, features a young pianist training fiercely to win the Liszt Competition with a performance of the challenging and highly celebrated Sonata in B minor. As one can imagine, it won’t be easy. Though both are European productions and publications, they are rooted in English language and culture, so with some work, patience and luck, they will be soon accessible in the US.
