Coinciding with the release of his sixth feature film The Little Stranger, we look back at the first film projects of Lenny Abrahamson and his long-time collaborators Stephen Rennicks and Ed Guiney.

PROGRAMME ONE – MENDEL WALZMAN
Of this short, filmed in the IFI buildings in 1987, Abrahamson said, ‘Mendel Walzman was the first thing I ever shot on film. It was a time when I had begun to get interested in my grandfather’s background, and the lost world of Jewish Poland. I wanted primarily to record my grandfather’s stories and his extraordinary accent!’
