A spokesperson describes the event as follows:
“…John Slattery’s THE FAR FIELD highlights the inertia and humorous paradoxes of contemporary farming in Ireland as 90-year-old Seamus Malloy goes about his daily tasks dodging cats, dogs and ping-pong balls.
THE TALE OF BILLY O’C, directed by Pete Harris, is a psychological crime thriller set in a small village in County Kilkenny, Ireland in 1975, with an IRA safehouse and small-town politics at the center of the plot; twist and turns abound while a bomb ticks down.
Worn Out, Played Out, Strung Out. 10 Years after Punk band Crust split up the band members lives have fallen apart, but Baz Black’s DUBLIN CRUST is out to put the band back together for one last epic gig. Directed, written and playing the drums, Baz Black has created a love song to punk that everyone will find endearing.
Daniel J. O’Donnell’s homage to the remarkable men and women who set out at the turn of the century in 1900 to create a National Theatre in Ireland. THE THEATRE ON LOWER ABBEY STREET, is the story of the early years of Ireland’s Abbey Theatre and how it earned its place in world theatre…”
