Keynote confirmed as Mark McGann and Julie Eagleton, writer/director and producer of ‘Perplexed Music’ starring Paul McGann. Perplexed Music is an original short screenplay by Mark McGann about the cycle of devoted love, loss and rebirth, based on the Petrarchan (Italian) sonnet of the same name by Elizabeth Barrett-Browning. The film explores the temporary madness and isolation experienced by a middle-aged man (played by Mark’s brother actor Paul McGann) as he battles for reason and stability with worlds past and present, in need of closure and the strength to continue on his journey without his life companion. See a short film here about the project:
After the film delegates will have the opportunity to talk to both Mark and Julie about the whole creative project, it’s genesis, actualising and delivery.
