|Father's Touch debuts tonight|
During its 6 1/2 -minute running time, the impressionistic movie profiles a middle-aged man revisiting his troubled past, both physically and in vivid recollections.
Appearing in the film are D'Haene and a cast of local actors who portray the ghost-like figures in the author's memory.
The presentation, by Fagan's film and video company Phat Puppy Productions, features an original music score by her brother, composer Jonathon Fagan.
Father's Touch was named to the top 50 list, from more than 1,600 entries, at TriggerStreet, an online, worldwide film festival established by Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey. The film can be viewed on the festival's website: www.triggerstreet.com.
Fagan plans to submit her film to several other cinema festivals, including the 2004 Toronto International Film Festival, and specialty TV networks. It will also be made available for use by social service agencies dealing with the issue of family abuse.
The $20,000 screen project was funded in part by a $5,000 grant from the London Arts Council.
Admission to today's public screening and reception, which begins at 7:30 p.m. at the hall in Galleria London, is free.
