What Means Motley?

Director: JOHN RILEY & JOHN KETCHUM

ROMANIA/IRELAND • 2005 • 90 MIN


In 1999 a party of 41 Romanians arrived at Dublin Airport, posing as a folk choir and band en route to participate in a festival in Sligo, for which their application had been accepted. After clearing passport control, some applied for asylum and the others disappeared without trace. Their visas were issued by Barry Mulligan, an Irishman who runs an advertising agency in Bucharest and acted as Ireland’s honorary consul. Now he’s co- scripted an offbeat comedy caper based on this story, lacing it with zany Oirishness and frenzied gypsy music. John Ford meets Emir Kusturica.
