Affected by an article about babies born with heroin addiction and with two close friends suffering from the affliction, rising talent – Director Rob Sorrenti took it upon himself to explore and capture what is a tragic subject. A short film that from concept to completion took four years to finish, “Hollow” explores the idea that love isn’t always enough when it comes to getting clean.
Rob: ‘What I wanted “Hollow” to show was that hope can still exist even in the darkest of times and that it is possible for people who have lived in the dark to turn their lives around.’
Surrounding themselves with people from the addiction community Rob and co-writer Lee Thomas have managed to capture the very moving reality of addiction. Featuring a talented cast (Morven Christie and Martin McCann) the viewer might find it disturbingly easy to identify with what may sometimes seem like a far removed subject.
‘By accurately portraying the physical and psychological damages of addiction, Hollow will help audiences not only understand the problems addiction bring, but also the routes to recovery for the person involved.’
