Expanding on this technique into the feature form, he crafts a cinematic mosaic that tells a 90-year-old love story through the collective voice of 70 ladies at different stages of their lives. The hallways, living rooms, and kitchens of the Irish midlands become the canvas for the film’s rich tapestry of female characters. The story unfolds sequentially from young to old, and the characters are charmingly unabashed; while the younger contributors are animated in discussing their relationship with their other halves, the older women describe their love, and often their bereft love, with grace and candor. ‘His & Hers’ celebrates the ordinary moments that add up to the extraordinary. Individually each piece works on its own, but together they create an emotional portrait that explores the way we share life’s journey with others.
Ken Wardrop has been described as one of Ireland’s freshest creative talents. His work captures humanity through an original treatment of character studies. His documentary ‘Undressing My Mother’ is one of Ireland’s most successful short films, winning a European Film Academy Award in 2005. Expanding on this technique Ken has crafted his distinctive debut feature ‘His & Hers’.
