Ep 24 from Cinemagic in Belfast: Aislinn Clarke, Bronagh Taggart, Maleficent, Bridesmaids, The Craft

Read more
Aislinn Clarke and Bronagh Taggart join host Anna Smith in episode 24 of Girls On Film, recorded in front of a live audience at the 30th Cinemagic Festival in Belfast.

Actress and writer Bronagh Taggart talks about her short film Guard, her love of sports movies, and about her BBC TV series Millie Inbetween and Flatmates, now on BBC iPlayer. She also talks about her very first ever acting role – with Daniel Day-Lewis.

Writer-director Aislinn Clarke has just received the second Academy Gold Fellowship for Women for her horror film The Devil’s Doorway. She joins us fresh from Los Angeles to talk about her film and about her view of horror as a means of addressing social trauma. She gives encouragement to women who want to work in the industry by drawing on her own experience of starting out as a 17-year old single working class Belfast mum.

Aislinn talks about two of her upcoming horror projects, Cunning Folk which she directs, and Slow Burn which she pens and is produced by Marianne Maddalena, who also produced all of Wes Craven’s films including Scream and Nightmare on Elm Street.

We review current releases Maleficent: Mistress of Evil with Angelina Jolie and Michelle Pfeiffer, discussing its design, its gender stereotyping and what it says about motherhood. We also review Home, by Sarah Outen, who undertook the mammoth task of travelling the circumference of the world powered only by herself. We also discuss some favourite classic movies, including In The Name Of The Father, Bridesmaids, The Craft and All About Eve.

Girls On Film is an HLA production produced by Hedda Archbold and Jane Long

Aislinn Clarke

Read more
Aislinn Clarke is the first Northern Irish woman to direct a feature-length horror film The Devil’s Doorway, and she brought a particularly female point-of-view by setting it in a Magdalene Laundry in 1960 Ireland. The Magdalene Laundries were institutions run by the Catholic church that were real-life horror stories for an untold number of women. They were essentially workhouses for women of “ill-repute” which could mean unwed mothers, prostitutes, women who wouldn’t get out of the way…the list of women who could be put away is quite long and varied. Aislinn Clarke feels connected to the laundries—shockingly, the last one closed in 1996—there was one in the town she grew up in and her father worked for a bakery and would deliver bread to the place. His stories stayed with her…as did his love for film, particularly horror films. Aislinn and I have a wide-ranging conversation about the history of the Magdalene Laundries, women in the film industry, what makes a good horror film and not a word about St. Patrick!

STBD - 1.2 - Aislinn Clarke (Writer & Film Director)

Read more
In this episode, Graeme tracked down writer, theatre and film-director Aislínn Clarke to her brand new office at Queen’s University Belfast, where she has just been appointed as a lecturer in scriptwriting with the Séamus Heaney Centre.

A graduate of the course that she now lectures on, Aislinn grew up on the border between the North and South of Ireland, and now lives in the quaint seaside town of Whitehead on the North Coast of Co. Antrim. Beginning a media career from when she graduated from a Film Studies degree in 2004, Aislínn has pursued her passion for telling stories with talent and tenacity, across TV, theatre, radio, and now film, with her first feature – The Devil’s Doorway – due to be released in 2018.

In this interview, Graeme uncovers how Aislinn’s early life created a love for telling stories, and how she manages to balance creative integrity and personal happiness with success and opportunity, and the joys of living by the sea.
