by Heather Nolan

“A woman falls in love with a perverse, manipulative man who nurtures the deviance in her, until she is jilted and seeks revenge. But on who?”

It Was Sunny the Day I Killed Her is Kenneth J. Harvey’s latest short film, a jarring piece that is being accepted into notable film festivals worldwide, including Russia, England, Egypt, Greece, Canada, Ireland, India, and the US.

Among the 15 festivals that will screen Harvey’s film this year, highlights for the filmmaker include Raindance, a world renowned festival in London, England, included in Variety’s Top 50 Film Festivals in the World, and Festival du Nouveau Cinema in Montreal, a major player worldwide for new and edgy film.

Harvey, also an internationally bestselling author, says that the feeling of a film being so widely accepted into film festivals is comparable to a book being accepted to literary festivals.

“Making films is playing make-believe with real people. Writing books is playing make-believe with abstract characters,” Harvey said.

The filmmaker added that after the solitude of writing novels, he particularly enjoys the collaborative aspect of filmmaking. The film has already received overwhelmingly positive reviews.

“I am about to turn 68,” said Linda Russell, “and nothing I have ever seen has had such a profound effect. I have to watch this again and again.”

Harvey says he hopes the film will intrigue and provoke. To stay updated on the film, or any of Harvey’s works, check out his website at KennethJHarvey.com
