Ireland on Sunday screening of The Looking Glass has been postponed until Sunday May 29th 2011 when director Colin Downey will be present to introduce the film and participate in a post-screening Q&A. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.Ireland on Sunday is our monthly showcase for new Irish Film.

We are delighted to welcome back prolific independent director Colin Downey with his new surrealist feature The Looking Glass. The film follows Paul, a troubled young man who lives in a rural cottage with his pregnant girlfriend Clare. While dealing with the sudden arrival of his sinister mother-in-law and coming to terms with his impending fatherhood, Paul constantly struggles to escape the traumas of his childhood. His attempts to face his past and grapple with his manhood take him on a dangerous journey peopled with exotic beauties, criminals and grotesques. The story, which moves quickly from familiar drama to dark fairytale, weaves together magic, mystery and suspense, and features another great performance from Patrick O’Donnell, winner of the Best Actor prize at the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival for The Fading Light, which was photographed by Colin Downey.

Colin Downey will introduce his film and participate in a post-screening Q&A.
