“South Dakota”, a docufiction movie about teenage pregnancy and abortion, will finally see a national release in the USA in October 2013… with some new music from Dolores!
Filmmaker Bruce Isacson confirmed to CranberriesWorld that 4 songs by Dolores will be featured in the movie: the No Baggage versions of “Stupid” and “Apple Of My Eye”, and brand new versions of Cranberries’ “Empty” and “Dreams”, for which Dolores went back into studio to record them.
Dolores also contributed to the movie score. “Dolores scored one of our sequences in the film, and she is credited as one of the film’s composers. Dolores and her husband Don Burton have been extremely supportive of our important film! I am so thankful for their continued encouragement,” told Isacson.
The “South Dakota” movie project was first announced in 2009. The movie portrays two dramatic stories about unplanned pregnancies along with sound bites of passionate pro choice and pro life advocates. “I found that so many of the women, when they go into this crisis of an unwanted pregnancy, they don’t have enough information so they can arrive at an intelligent decision or what course of action to take. And that’s why I made the film. You know, I stayed neutral. I didn’t want to manipulate my audience with my own point of view,” explained the filmmaker in a video posted this week.
Check out this video with the movie trailer, a message from the Director and some footage from a screening back in 2009, in which you can see Dolores. (Note that the versions of “Dreams” and “Empty” in the footage are the 1993 and 1994 album versions,and not the new ones).
You can contribute money to help Isacson distribute the movie via Kickstarter. Kickstarter is the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world. Every Kickstarter project must be fully funded before its time expires. Your pledges will help them raise the P&A Budget (Prints and Advertising Materials).
“South Dakota” swept major awards at the 2010 Los Angeles Reel Film Festival, including Best Screenplay and Best Director.
