A finger on the pulse of contemporary, short form, documentary filmmaking in Ireland.
Michael MacBroom’s It Came From Comber offers a lavishly clip-filled portrait of legendary B-movie director Roy Spence; Sean Mullan and Michael Barwise’s Billy Willy forms a journey through memory and the world of jazz; Dianne Lucille Campbell’s experimental exploration of the sighthound in El Hor; Peter Kilmartin’s story of triumphant romance against the odds in The Sunny Side Up; a group of students rise to the challenge of teenage motherhood in Nodlag Houlihan’s Reality Baby; and Paul Webster crafts a narrative on church, state and vigilantism in The Vasectomy Doctor.
