Henry & Sunny

Director: Fergal Rock.
In a time of unprecedented economic depression, mass unemployment and civil unrest, one group has borne the brunt of society’s scorn – the clowns. Henry & Sunny is the bittersweet tale of Henry, an unemployed clown, in love with the famous soap opera actress, Sunny Carmichael. He writes her letters daily yet fear of rejection prevents him from disclosing his return address. Sunny, stifled by a sycophantic showbiz world, reciprocates Henry’s feelings but is tragically unable to reach him. Beautifully photographed in high contrast black & white, Henry & Sunny is a melancholy tale of true love against all odds.
