New documentary celebrates Msgr. Michael Doyle, the beloved ‘Heart of Camden’
Douglas Clayton fell in love with Msgr. Michael J. Doyle while directing an ambitious new documentary about him called Heart of Camden. The filmmaker has plenty of company: Tens of thousands of people in the city and beyond have embraced the Catholic priest and poet who has been Camden’s indefatigable champion for nearly half a century.
“I wanted to tell a story that inspires people to make a difference,” said Clayton, a producer (thefilmdoc.com) well as the director of the 42-minute documentary, for which he is seeking broadcast, screening, and streaming opportunities. “Father Doyle is an amazing person.”
We were thrilled to have representation from our partners at The Cork Chamber of Commerce, ICL (Independent Container Lines), The Port of Cork, and Penn Terminals to share their knowledge on the brand new Cork-Chester Shipping Route at our virtual seminar – A Global Conversation: Keeping the Show on the Road and the Sea on October 1st. This mutually-beneficial trans-Atlantic container shipping service is the first direct link between the USA and Ireland in years.
