A Song for Rebecca

Director: NORAH MC GETTIGAN

IRELAND/POLAND • 2005 • 44 MIN


Donegal native Norah Mc Gettigan was the first Irish film student accepted at the renowned Lodz Film School in Poland, the alma mater of Polanski, Kieslowski and Wajda. A Song For Rebecca is her graduation film, in which a young woman, Laura (impressively played by Gemma Doorly), returns to her Donegal island home for the funeral of her best friend, who committed suicide. This is an assured and atmospheric film achieved with a keen sense of visual style. The crew is composed of students from Lodz, most of them Polish.

Also screening WHAT IF (DIRECTOR ALAN WALSH) This new Irish comedy features Simon Delaney and Hugh Lee as movie stuntmen who decide to write their own screenplay. Peppered with movie in-jokes, it includes cameos from, among others, John Boorman and Jim Sheridan.
