More US festival success for Wexford director Laura Way's 'Hoplite Armour' film

By david tucker

a film made by Laura Way's Bodecii film company for Ronan Furlong's chart topping single 'Hoplite Armour' is now part of the official selection of the New Hope Film Festival, in the USA.

New Hope Film Festival is a cutting edge, global film festival set in the heart of Bucks County, Pennsylvania's riverside art colony, New Hope.

The listing is the latest in a string of successes for 'Hoplite Armour' which was shortlisted for the Paris Music Video Underground Festival and is being considered for the 'Best of the Best Awards' in Los Angeles later in the year.

The video was filmed at Kilmore Quay in July, 2016.

Directed and produced by Laura Way and her Bodecii Film company, with camera by Barry Doyle, 'Hoplite Armour' is one of the tracks on Ronan's album 'Minerva's Meddling.'

Based around the trials and tribulations faced by the Hoplites - the citizen soldiers of Ancient Greek states - Ronan said his song was about the challenges and struggles we all face in life, and the inspiration we can draw from the beautiful world around us.
