Director Pollyanna McIntosh will attend the New York City premiere of her film Darlin’ at the IFC Center on Thursday, March 21 during the What The Fest!? film festival.
Darlin’ is Pollyanna McIntosh’s grand directorial debut, her precious beautiful baby, and there’s no place she’d rather be than at the film’s East Coast premiere in New York City. This Thursday, March 21 at 7 p.m. sharp, the charming McIntosh will attend the film’s screening during the What The Fest!? film festival at the IFC Center. Tickets are available now at IFC Center.com to attend the premiere and Q & A session.
Best known in recent times for her brilliant, complex portrayal of Jadis/Anne on The Walking Dead, actress Pollyanna McIntosh knows how to bring a vision of a character to life. There’s much to be said on-screen even when there are no words, and McIntosh excels in this art form. Her facial expressions crafting the whole story. Thus Darlin’, a direct sequel to 2011’s The Woman was born!
McIntosh reprises her character ‘The Woman’ in Darlin’ but this time also takes the reigns on the other side of the camera. The Director’s chair, head honcho, creative extraordinaire. Joining her on the visionary journey are Walking Dead cast mates Cooper Andrews (Jerry), Sabrina Gennarino (Tamiel) and Thomas Francis Murphy (Brion), as supporting cast members in the film. Actress Lauryn Canny [Amber] stars as the film’s co-lead, along with pivotal co-stars Nora-Jane Noone and Bryan Batt.
NYC attendees will be treated to a tribute before the film to horror fiction author Jack Ketchum, who created the original universe that shaped Darlin’. Ketchum sadly passed away in January 2018. The tribute was created in collaboration with The Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies, an international educational community dedicated to the study of horror history.
McIntosh penned the screenplay for The Woman‘s direct sequel Darlin’. The Woman itself was actually a sequel to 2009’s Offspring, also written by Ketchum.
