Five years ago, an independent filmmaker discovered a little known story by award-winning writer Kealan Patrick Burke (The Turtle Boy, The Hides, Taverns of the Dead) in a shadowy corner of the Internet. From that tale of psychological horror, regret and haunting guilt, would come an unsettling motion picture called The Quiet. Superbly acted, and filmed in a location colder than the heart of its protagonist, The Quiet explores the relationship between father and son, husband and wife, and what becomes of a tortured mind when the ability to communicate is abruptly stolen away.
But sometimes it takes losing everything to see into the dark.
To see the faces smiling back at you in the quiet...
In this chapbook you’ll find the original short story “The Quiet” and the screenplay for the movie, together with a brand new introduction by Kealan Patrick Burke detailing the story’s journey from page to screen.
