Galway Film Fleadh: Irish Talent – New Shorts 5&6, Fiction

The 34th Galway Film Fleadh will feature Irish Talent: New Shorts 5&6, Fiction at Town Hall Theatre.

Irish Talent: New Shorts 5, Fiction at 10am
This selection of live-action shorts explores themes of avoidance and escapism, but ultimately the feeling of satisfaction when you stop running and face the truth. Please note, this programme touches on the topics of sexual assault and domestic violence.
Films –
Croí (Heart) – Two explorers from an ill-fated expedition in the Antarctic find shelter as they face one last, impossible leg of their journey to safety, and reveal the truth of what happened out on the ice.

A Runner – Every night, Fionn, a troubled teenager, evades questions of worth, as well as the dangerous atmosphere of his broken home, by going on gruelling night-time runs. Fionn routinely runs along the concrete path of his local beach. Running is his therapy.

Superhuman – After being rejected from professional football and diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa, a degenerative eye disease, an African-Irish leaving cert student is guided towards para-athletics; all while learning to deal with his new identity.

An Irish Goodbye – Estranged brothers Turlough and Lorcan reunite following the untimely death of their mother. As Turlough prepares care arrangements for Lorcan, who has Down syndrome, the pair’s turbulent reunion is interrupted by the discovery of their mother’s unfulfilled bucket list.
