I Used To Live Here follows Amy Keane, a 13-year-old trying to cope with the death of her mother and the reappearance of her father’s ex-girlfriend, who experiences the temptation of suicide after witnessing the outpouring of love for a local suicide victim. The film takes a fictional look at how the idea of suicide can spread in communities, particularly among young people.

Featuring performances from a mostly non-professional cast including Jordanne Jones, Dafhyd Flynn, James Kelly and Ross Geraghty, and filmed on the streets of Killinarden in Tallaght, Dublin, the film offers a striking dramatic representation of a real-life community on screen.

From Frank Berry, director of the award-winning documentary Ballymun Lullaby, and researched with the assistance of Headstrong, the National Centre for Youth Mental Health, I Used To Live Here sensitively explores the tragic phenomenon of suicide clusters, an issue that is affecting a growing number of communities around the world.

I Used To Live Here will be released in Irish cinemas on April 3rd 2015′
