Director Statement

Malady of Mine is a film about a young man, who, burdened by a mysterious disease, struggles to save his relationship, and ultimately himself. I wanted to tell a story about the powerful nature of our subconscious and the dark places we often turn to for inspiration as artists. Malady of Mine is a cautionary tale about the importance of untangling emotional health, creativity, and physical wellbeing, which can become dangerously intertwined.

About The Event

Ted Geoghegan 2017, USA, 91 mins

The War of 1812 has revived violent hostilities between the British and their erstwhile American colonial subjects. The powerful Mohawk nation of the New York region is divided as to whom they should stand by, and so they maintain a position of neutrality. They want no part in the killing – but the killing is coming to them. An impulsive attack on an American encampment has drawn the vengeful attentions of a ragged band of American military renegades, led by the vicious, racist Hezekiah Holt. Oak, Calvin, and their British lover Joshua flee into the woods so familiar to them, but the murderous musketeers on their trail will not be deterred. Not without the spilling of blood.
