Cir•ce•o: tʃiɹ tʃɛː'ɔ
In 2011 sister-brother team, writer/director Jennifer Corcoran and producer Jonnie Corcoran, created Circeo Films to independently produce a cycle of dramatic feature films about women -- but more specifically, about our feminine nature -- a voice that has long been silent.
A "cycle” of films implies movement. Women live in lunar cycles. Our Earth follows cycles as do planets and stars, everything is in a constant flux of potential and growth.
The first film of the cycle, She Sings to the Stars released in 2017, questions what do we believe is ‘real’ and what is 'possible'? What is sustaining and sustainable? How do we live with each other on the only planet we have? The grandmother in the story says little but listens and sings to the generosity and grace of place, living in relationship to all of it.
The next film in the cycle is set in contemporary rural Ireland with a 28-year old woman as protagonist.
