Synopsis: Narrated by Colin Farrell, this is the incredible story of Simon Fitzmaurice, a young Irish filmmaker who, despite a diagnosis of Motor Neuron Disease, goes on to direct an award-winning feature film solely through the use of his eyes. The documentary is a celebration of Simon’s love of film, of creating art and of telling beautiful human stories no matter the obstacle. His artistic supporter, Colin Farrell, beautifully narrates this life-affirming story which is based on Simon’s book also titled It’s Not Yet Dark.
The TIDE Experiment exists since 2012 and consists in the strategic coordination of multi-territorial releases of films on Day-and-Date(simultaneous or quasi simultaneous VoD and theatrical releases) and, as of 2015, on Festival-to-Date (simultaneous or quasi simultaneous VoD and festival releases) with an articulated and transversal distribution and marketing strategy. Festival-to-Date releases are a good way to enlarge a festival’s visibility, while allowing a film to capitalize on accrued exposure to commercially reach an audience.
