Dying to Divorce's Producer Sinead Kirwan’s first feature documentary STILL THE ENEMY WITHIN, (Grierson shortlisted, Sheffield Audience Award Winner) was one of the most successful UK documentaries of 2014. Sinead worked on the distribution of ECOCIDE (Sheffield Green Award-nominated) and the short PRECIOUS METAL about women affected by the Marikana Massacre with Executive Producer Rehad Desai. She is currently in-house Producer for Freakfilms in Edinburgh and working on developing their documentary slate.
DYING TO DIVORCE explores how women are being murdered and killed in Turkey and their partners, are receiving low sentences. Weaving together lawyer Ipek Bozkurt work with her clients and two years of unprecedented and dramatic changes in Turkey, DYING TO DIVORCE puts viewers at the heart of Turkey’s gender-based violence crisis.
Sinead will be involved in the following FiLiA session
