New Irish LGBT drama /thriller, The Betrayal, from writer/director Kamila Dydyna, addresses sexual identity issues and the horrors of domestic violence (see video clip below).

Co-directed with Natasha Waugh, produced by Driftwood Doll Films, shot by Gosia Zur, featuring Mark McAuley and Miriam Devitt in leading roles, The Betrayal will premiere at the 24th GAZE International LGBT Film Festival in Dublin, on 31st July.

The Betrayal was just completed last month, and is getting its premiere screening at the 24th GAZE International LGBT Film Festival in The Light House Cinema, on 31st.
It is a short (26-min) film, about the harrowing issue of domestic violence, and also the complexities of gender identity. It was financed through private investors and a successful crowdfunding campaign, with a total budget of €9000.
The film has a great soundtrack as well, and features tracks from Ryan Vail’s debut album For Every Silence, Conor Walsh’s The Front, tracks by OCHO, and most notably, Martha’s Dream by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.
Below is a small taste of The Betrayal to whet your appetites:

Music in the video is by OCHO, and it is edited by Iseult Howlett.

The Betrayal premieres at the GAZE International LGBT Film Festival, at the Light House Cinema, Dublin, on 31st July.
