It is not flesh and blood but the heart that makes fathers and sons, this important relationship is the central theme to Steve Kenny’s magical short film Time Traveller.
The film stars Newcomer Tom Doran, who plays Martin, a ‘Back To The Future’ obsessed boy who strives to finish building his own DeLorean replica. This young Irish Traveler* boy fights to finish his car before the family are evicted from the site in which they live. The lead actors impeccably portray a beautiful father (Barry Ward) and son relationship. Not only do these two have a strong bond, the father helps encourages his young son’s creativity in spite of the difficult circumstances they find themselves in. Kenny beautifully directs this must see film, ensuring the actors steal our attention from the moment they enter the screen.
