Ben's Hilarious Life

Fortress of Solitude

I recently worked with Louise Manifold on her beautiful short film, ‘Fortress of Solitude.’ I read an extract from my specially commissioned poem, ‘The Hero No One Believed In,’ over the action. This film was inspired by the ongoing Two Suitcases Project, where teenagers work with professional artists on their own short films. It was screened along with the Two Suitcases film ‘Planet of the Capes’, a superhero story created by members of CanTeen Ireland – the national young people’s cancer support group – in collaboration with Helium Arts.

Watch the ‘Fortress of Solitude’ film here.
