Irish production company to launch new feature film in Korean festival market


Kildare-based production company Prelude Content has announced that its feature film Devil’s Left Handcurrently in development, was selected for NAFF Project Market at the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFAN) in South Korea in July.

Devil’s Left Hand tells the story of Cassandra, a black Irishwoman living in Japan, who must learn Bōjutsu so that she can exact revenge on the vicious Yakuza crime boss who cut off her arm and murdered her family.

Prelude Content was created in 2021 by writer/producer Paul FitzSimons and Devil’s Left Hand will be their first feature film.

I’m thrilled to make such an exciting and progressive film, the story of a black Irish woman leading the fight against the Japanese mob.

Paul FitzSimons, Producer – Prelude Content

The film is based on the upcoming graphic novel by acclaimed writer Victor Santos. Santos’ previous novel Polar was adapted into a feature film for Netflix, starring Mads Mikkelsen and Vanessa Hudgens, and a sequel was recently announced.

It’s the first time I’ve worked on a graphic novel that is, at the same time, adapted into a feature film. It’s the combined vision of an international team, brought together to tell this epic and emotional story of revenge and redemption.

Victor Santos, author

Devil’s Left Hand is a Japanese, Irish and British co-production. The screenplay is written by Japanese writer/director Mutsumi Kameyama and English writer/producer Anthony Alleyne.

I have a few features on my slate. But none of them are as exceptional as Devil’s Left Hand.

Kameyama, whose previous film 12 Months Of Kai won more than 10 international awards, will also direct.

One of my goals is to make an action movie that reflects a fantastic but realistic view of Japan.

Mutsumi Kameyama, writer/director

Kameyama and FitzSimons will meet with financiers, distributors and other global film leaders at the three-day BIFAN industry gathering in Bucheon, South Korea, July 9-12.
