Irish Film Institute -DARK SKIES: PRIMER


Director: Shane Carruth

77 mins; 2004; USA; Digital

This film screened on Friday 14th July 2017.

This screening will be introduced by Sean Power, Department of Philosophy Trinity College Dublin.

Aaron and Abe, two young engineers dabbling in a side-line entrepreneurial tech project stumble upon a means to travel in time in Shane Carruth’s ultra low-budget debut, which he directed, produced, edited, wrote, scored and starred in.

With an appropriately DIY aesthetic, Carruth applies a rigorously intellectual approach to the concept of time travel, investigating its potential applications and knotty conundrums in a real-world fashion, trusting the audience will keep pace with the often dizzying parallels and alternative realities Aaron and Abe’s box-like device permits.

This screening is part of the Dark Skies: A Festival of Science Fast and Fiction season which runs July 13th to 16th 2017. Click here for more information.
