One of the most imaginative and original bands around - Clann Zu - along with one of Ireland's foremost bands in the 'modern' traditional arena - Kila - have lent respective members to a project that will feature in the upcoming "Cork Film Festival".

"The Raven " (or, as Gaeilge "an Fiach Dubh") features the vocal talents of Ronan from Kila, and is animated by Declan de Barra of Clann Zu. Declan has been known to create some pretty scary (i.e. dark and thoughtful) animations (for example, the video for "5000 more") and has recently been recognised as a seriously creative 'film' maker in his own right.

The film features on October 17th. Details from www.corkfilmfest.org.

Further information on Kila from www.kila.ie and on Clann Zu from www.clannzu.com (including other animations)

Ron, IU
