JERUSALEM IN SALFORD
 

Star date: 10th July 2010

SALFORD FILM SHOWS DARKNESS AND BEAUTY

A debut feature film called Jerusalem, made by Salford's Paul McDonahue, and being shot over the summer on a budget of nil, is promising to stream out some hard hitting messages to the Government about our `green and pleasant land'…

More details here…


Paul McDonahue, local writer/producer/director, is to make his filming debut with an inspiring film called Jerusalem, highlighting social and political taboos that go on within the country, and challenging how we relate to one another as a society.

Disillusioned with war and the Government, an AWOL soldier arrives in the English countryside after the train he is travelling home on breaks down. Stranded there, he journeys cross-country to the next train station meeting various characters, while being pursued by a mysterious policeman.

"The film might give a slight insight into how some soldiers feel and/or cope, but that's only one element of the story" says Paul "It's not a war film, it's a look at England as a whole with most of its social and political problems.

"The title 'Jerusalem' was inspired by the William Blake poem of the same name" he adds "I just felt that it fit quite well with the film with regards to the darkness and beauty within both."

Jerusalem doesn't contain well-known stars but does have a cast of experienced actors who have done episodic television and theatre work. Paul's friend, Darren Jones will also be taking part in the project. A playwright and an actor, Paul says "He is a name you will definitely be getting to know on TV soon enough and he's also making his name in the film world too."

The film will be shot this summer, filmed over a period of ten days and with no budget.
